    80's Masi track bike needs a fork and a brake

    I've got a super sweet red masi track bike. lugged steel. I want to start riding it on the road and need a new fork so I can run a front brake. My dream would be to find a vintage 230mm masi fork in pristine condition (Red) to match the rest of the ride. beyond that pipedream, what options do I have? A nice vintage campy delta brake would be the icing on that cake!

    That fork wasn't meant to be drilled, it's a track bike. Find and optional fork and save the authenticity of the Masi bike.

    the Bike Cult fork has a road rake so it will change the handling of the bike. Also, it's not the lightest fork if that matters to you. I have one and it works for my conversion.

    You are the first person on this thread to mention drilling anything. The option was obviously never on the table.

    hte bikecult looks good, the tange also looks good for chrome choices on the easy side of cost. Where do you get something like this?

    In Japan and its way too much money if you ask me. If you have round bladed forks, Kalavinka has a much cheaper option and theyll ship it to you in the states.

    nobody imports them to the US? it is way cheaper than the first one but not nearly as eye catching. Form v function v replace the fork? I'm going to take it for a spin and make sure I don't need more of a rake since I've never ridden the thing OFF the track.

    Can we just have a sticky with the link called "don't want to drill your fork? Buy this"

    No offense to the OP, but this comes up quite often.
