Is the idea behind these forks that you cut them down to the correct length? How realistic is that? Would you then have to re-thread the fork, or is it conceivable that you cut it down and the cut end would still "thread"?
I have a 71 Schwinn Continental with a 22" frame. I would love to use a chrome fork... if I thought I could get it down to the correct length.
