Colnago Fork - help identify

I just bought this fork. Does anyone know a lot about these? I'd like to know:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=130292854515

-what year
-what bike (maybe master pista)

with it being a 262 steer, maybe what size of bike it came from..

any info on the geometry would be great, especially the rake!

(the owner doesn't know)
Thanks!
J

not sure if it applies to the older curved units but iirc, when colnago switched to straight blades, they fixed their fork geometry at 43mm of rake/offset ,regardless of frame size
The Precisa (straight blade) fork was introduced in 1987, so it's more likely mid-1980s. Due to variances in angles, tire clearance and headset stack height, you can't calcualte the exact frame size, but I'd say it's for a big racing frame, at least 60cm.

Yea but I could cut that down and re-thread.

Does the box look like its from the 80's? Maybe it's a re-issue?

I hope it fits my Alien frame! The forks on the Alien have a 28mm rake.. yikes.
