    looking for a fork like this



    anyone recognise it, or by chance could have been the one selling them?

    i got this off ebay back in the spring for a future try at a full on recumbent. i recently started working on a less serious lighter weight cruiser and want to use the same fork if i can find one.

    the ebay sale is too far back so i can't look up the info. it's supposed to be for a 16" wheel but a low profile 20" will work on it.

    seems like the seller was in canada, and they had a few of them at the time. i didn't pay much so it could be if i find another it may be more than i want to pay. anyway, i need a sourse for it.

    thanks for any help or info.

    Looks like an ActionTec, which were not the OEM for the Cannondale HeadShok.

    headshok

    i came across that word while i was looking yesterday and plugged it into an ebay search. the prices were so much higher than what these forks were going for so i thought they must be from somehwere else.

    Must be ActionTec due to small steer tube. Cannot be Cannondale because they use 1-1/4" head set.

    Nope. Action-Tec uses a 1 1/4" headset. Can-o'-dale used their own nearly-two-inch diameter headset for the Headshok. That looks like a Taiwan-built shock fork, similar to these KSS forks:

    I've got one in my basement.. diameter of the steertube is not 1 1/4", but 1 1/8". Fitted with 16" wheel (16x1.35), new Primo Comet tire and tube, new XTR V-brake, Deore QR skewer.

    I should have said that I recognized the OP's fork was 1 1/8" steerer. The 1 1/4" refers to the other posters' mention of the Action-Tec fork, which seems to have dissappeared: http://www.actiontec.us/proshock.htm

    finally got another, and the seller has at least one more if anyone's into bike projects.

    i kept going back through my old paypal payments trying to figure out who the seller was and finally found her. sent an email to see if she had any more and she said she had a few left and would put some up on ebay, under the seller name "lixandria". she didn't say how many she had exactly but the one up now is the 4th one since i asked about them.

    anyway, might be good for someone who likes building as much as riding.

    Another possibility: RST makes the Capa 20" suspension fork. eBikestop currently has them for $72, no steerer tube.
    The 20" RST is probably taller tho'.

    If you insist on a suspension fork specifically for a 16" wheel, you may be SOL other than maybe eBay. I'm not sure why you would though, other than restoring a bike that came with a 16". I've heard of way more 16" forks converted to 20" than the other way around.
