WTB - Peugeot Reynolds 531 Chrome Fork

I'm restoring an old 1981 Peugeot Super Competition and am having the fork's steer tube reworked after it got damaged. However, as a "just in case" I'm looking for a replacement and seeing what might be out there.

So I'm looking for an early 1980s Peugeot chrome fork, Reynolds 531 tubing.

Thanks.

I don't have the mark and model of fork you're seeking, was merely trying to help the thread along.

kvnmuadib....
I just looked,... I didn't come across a single Peugeot Reynolds 531 fork??
Are you thinking of just the UO-8 forks that are on there??

Reynolds 531 Fork French Threaded | eBay
Not listed as a Peugeot, and from the 70s. Are you sure your Super Competition is French threaded?

I saw thisfork a few days ago....iys pretty vague as to what it is.

And yes my fork?... it was definitely french threaded trust me after the steer tube split from having a 22.2 stem pushed into it...that along with a set of dial calipers easily confirmed it....but the old steer tube was just replaced with a British threaded t use.

Regardless of all that....I'd like to still find a replacement fork

Well, that fork is probably from something like a Motobecane, Gitane, or Peugeot. I'd guess it's from a 1970s blue PX10, but that's just a guess.


Drop Peter Weigle a note with what you're looking for. He's got a thing for French parts, and he has a bunch of forks in his shed "just in case."
You'll probably want to measure what you have in terms of axle to crown, rake, as well as headtube length (which you listed above): Fork Lengths, by Damon Rinard. Carbon forks and steering geometry changes. and Bicycle fork - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I've got one from a 70s PX10. Steerer is 148mm as well as I can measure it. It is freshly rechromed. I damaged the frame after the chrome but the fork is intact.

Email or PM me if you are interested.
