    I hate cutting a chromed fork as it is very hard on the cutter(SHARPENING A CUTTER IS 35 TO 50 BUCKS) That said I will cut a threaded fork because so few people need it done anymore, might as well make somebody happy.

    L.A. is huge, there has got to be a shop that will do it.

    this is a decent place to ask this, i suppose... is it possible to have a 1" threadless fork threaded? yes, i know that some people may think i'm dumb for doing it, but that aside.. can it be done?

    There is absolutely nowhere in LA to get that fork threaded..Nope no one will do it, so you might as well hand it over to me and I'll destory it for you....and by destroy I mean put it on my bike.

    I think that is the gist of what the OP wants to do...and find a location where this threading would occurr.

    Its a sweet fork and I'm really tempted to buy it from ya, but right now money's tight and I'd have to put it on another bike considering I have shunned chrome in favor of black for my current ride. Good looking out though. Thanks.

    yeah it was me. The fork is still good to use threadless, but the threads I paid to have put on there stripped in about a month

    I would not thread a threadless steerer. The wall thickness is not enough to support the threads.
