    Teledyne Titan

    Does anyone know where I could pick up a set of original or repros decals for a Teledyne Titan? Also wondering if anyone out there has a fork for a Titan? I bought just the frame and need a fork. I could go with a steel fork, but thought it would look better with a ti one. I understand that these forks were pron to cracks along with the seat post binder bolt mount. The frame is a 57, so the steer tube would have to be long enough. Thanks again.

    The frames came in inch sizes, 21, 22, 23, 24 and a very few 19's. Measured center to top of the seat tube, you probably have a 23". Doubtful you will find a Teledyne fork, easier to find a frame set. Head angle was 74. Designed at the time for "normal reach brakes" Don't over tighten the seat binder and make sure the post is a true 26.8 and you should be fine, unless its already cracked.

    Cyclart did have the stickers, but I think they have to apply them, very few of these were painted from the builder. All were an shade of turquoise that were factory painted. Rumor was they were cosmetic flawed before or repaired, they were sold at a $100 discount to the dealers.
