Need a fork for my old Raleigh...

Finished up my fixie project and noticed the front fork is bent. The tire rolls cocked to one side. Anyone know where I can pick up a nice inexpensive quill fork? It is for a 72 Raleigh Super Course size ~60. Thanks.

Try your LBS. I know we can get basic 27" chrome or black replacement forks for about $30 retail. Otherwise, I know there is a guy trying to get rid of a fork in the trade thread in this forum. Try that one as well.

LBS should be able to help.

I just picked up a NOS Tange Lugged fork for $50, or I could have ordered a newer one for cheaper, but the old chromed steel and lugged crown were too purdy to pass up.

If your frame is a 60cm,no. But,if the steer tube is too long,it could be cut.

Would a 27" fork work? Niagara Cycle Works sells Pyramid chrome 27" forks for under $15. I just put one on a Continental and it worked great.
