Where can I find a white carbon fiber road fork?

Greetings --

Sorry if I posted in a wrong forum.

Does anyone know of a place where I can buy a white carbon fiber fork for a road bike? I tried ebay, nashbar, jensen....nothing. I tried amazon and searched pages and pages of google results.

Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.

Buy a regular one and have it painted.

Carbon Forks are dangerous. Get a Crome/Moly fork.

By the way, the term "White Carbon" refers to a composite, of Carbon Fiber overlaid with Fiberglass. Please, to avoid confusion, don't say "White Carbon" unless you mean a Carbon/Glass Composite.

Unless that's what you meant?
