    I want a bent fork.

    I need a bent fork. I'm possibly going to have to do a steerer transplant for my cracked Gitane TdF fork, and I am just not comfortable sacraficing a perfectly good fork. I really need to find a bent french fork so I can just take the steerer off of it.

    Here are the pics of the fork I picked up at the co-op. It's french threaded, and has campy dropouts. Can anyone identify this fork? It just might get saved if it's unique..

    Hardly.

    A seventies Peugeot fork would look like either of these and it would not have Campy ends. Note the seam on the non-Reynolds fork. Only the PX10 didn't have it. The black crown is similar, but not the same.
