    Help with 97' Moser fork

    I am not sure whats going on with this Moser fork. It's threaded but it extends 1 1/2" past the headtube. The spacers then the top of the headset seem odd. Does anyone know about this design?
    Thank you

    It's uncut. You can cut it to the proper length easily and eliminate the need for spacers.

    Before cutting made sure it's threaded far enough.

    Uncut

    OK. It's a factory fork for all sizes. The shop or distributor cuts too length to frame size. I am getting it. The guy I got it from, or his shop, had not done that. He just rigged it. I think I have the idea. Thank You!

    the pic shows that it is, otherwise the top threaded race (beneath the spacers and lock nut) wouldn't make contact.
    Oops, I misunderstood: I thought you were cautioning bout having enough threads on the South end of the steerer, not the North. My apologies;(...yes it's always good advice to check that stack height (with any spacers you might use) before you cut, and measure twice.
