I have a very nice Trek fork from a 1979 900 model. The 900 was Trek's best bike at the time, the fork is made from Columbus SP. The frame was 25 inch and will fit 27 inch wheel, so this might fit perfectly. I'd be willing to send it to you for s&h.

My question is if your frame is French tubing with French threading. Can you determine the tubing type and measure the steerer for both length and diameter? Can you post a picture of the Reynolds 531 decal?
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
