    700c fork for 27" Bridgestone 400

    I have a Bridgestone 400 that I'm completely overhauling. I've replaced the horizontal dropouts with trackends. Filled in the brake hole on the rear brake bridge via MIG welder, and removed all the brazeons. I'm looking for either a 288mm threaded 700c fork(not drilled for a brake) or a 1" threadless 700c fork thats over 300mm undrilled (drilled is ok if its steel and not chromed). I've been looking for quite a while ane haven't found anything that seems to suit the need. So I've decided to come for help.

    Most uncut steerer's have 300mm I'd preferably like to have more than that like 350 - 375

    So you want to put a track fork on a road frame with relaxed angles? If your 400 is like mine then it's slack enough to fit 32 CX tires. I think that would make for some screwy handling but I'm no expert on geometry. Anyone else want to chime in on the effect?
