    Wanted: Fork for '84 Bottecchia

    Was riding the other day and hit a storm drain. My wheel went directly between the grate and the curb and my fork snapped. I would like to replace it as everything on the bike was original. Any suggestions?

    Look on ebay? I had a frame with out a fork, and it took many many months untill a correct length columbus fork came onto ebay. Was worth the wait.

    There's this one on the local CL. Not sure if it's what you're looking for but it might get you going until you find another one. Not mine but I could ship it if the seller won't.

    If you mean you would like to replace the original fork with another Bottecchia fork that's going to be difficult. I've only once seen a Bottecchia fork come up on eBay. The most afordable option is likely to be to just find a generic chrome fork with the correct geometry. Best bet for a Bottecchia fork is likely to find a complete Bottecchia frame. I don't know what tubing yours is. An Aelle frame/fork can be found for a couple hundred bucks on eBay. Last resort and the most expensive one, would be to have a frame builder disassemble your broken fork and see if he can reuse your Bottecchia crown to build a new fork from scratch and then have it chromed.
