this is the one I got , it was the cheapest I could find online....it is in threadless and threaded models, put this on my mt bike and it works great...if you order from aebike, great service but it takes awhile for the order to arrive

Try Nashbar. In the recent past I've seen threaded steel forks in their catalog and the price was very reasonable.
