Let's see some photos of 27 inch forks with 700c rims/tires installed on them with a front brake. Working on a project and need some inspiration.

Done.

My 1984 Trek 520. Cantilever brakes, though... dunno if you're looking for caliper brake photos.

i don't have a picture, but i built up a trek 400 for my brother. the frame and fork was made for 27" wheels, but i used a 700c wheelset. i used rx100 long reach calipers with 25mm tires and 35mm sks fenders. everything just worked ... until he tried to ride over a pile of bricks and tacoed the front wheel.

Mind you, these came with either 27" clinchers or 700C tubulars back in the day. There isn't much clearance with a 27", though the '61s were supposedly designed for either.
