Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

The Right Fork ?

Okay I got 4days before this ebay bid ends and I want to make sure this is the right fork .
My frame's headtube is 5"(about 150mm) and the new fork I want to buy has 12 1/2"(about 320mm) .

My question pretty much is . .
Is this the right fork length ?
If it isn't can I machine cut it (it's threadless) ?
Will the length of the fork before (if) I machine cut it affect my frame's geometry ?
