Try Cycles Marinoni in Montreal Quebec. I advised someone else not too long ago and they bought a fork. I'm not sure of the drilling but that shouldn't be a problem. The fork will be black but they could paint it for you. E-mail frambuilder Luc (luc@marinoni.qc.ca) and tell him I sent ya.

You can always drill the hole yourself if you want. I drilled the carbon fork on my Fuji Track Pro, you just need the titanium bits.

Don't know about white, but here are some black options:

First two are UK builders:
Planet-x, who I think have distribution in the US, make a very nice black carbon track fork (that comes drilled):

Nelson make a very nice black track fork which is drilled and doesn't have logos:

Picture here:

Wound-up forks are nice (depends if you like their graphics) and make a good track/road hybrid fork that can be used for racing:

But one thing is definite, if you can get 'em in the UK with easy, then there has to be a ton of US based options.

The fork on the Pista concept is different than the Fuji. Folks have claimed on previous threads that you should not try and drill the concept fork.

I'm going to be getting a track pro frameset and want to run a front brake, is the track pro fork safe to drill?

How do I go about drilling the fork without ruining it's structural integrity?
