  • Here is a beautiful chrome-plated 1" threaded ATB / MTB mountain bike fork (for 26" wheel), condition, excellent and virtually flawless.
  • It's 90's Schwinn product, made in Japan, and using Tange Cro-mo steel.
  • Removed from its newly-opened bulk carton and heavy plastic bag for the accompanying images. The chrome is a bit thin or crazed around the brazed-on bases of the cantilever brake mounts: this is a normal factory standard not a flaw: it is totally heavy and fine everywhere else.
  • Features double eyelets on the dropouts, and braze-on tunnel inserts (unthreaded) midway down the blades for low riding pannier rack mounts. This is from the day when ATB's were considered a good choice for touring or even expedition cycling, and, y'know: the best of them still are.....
  • STATS: the 1" steering tube is a full 170mm (slightly less than 6 3/4") long from the crown race seat to the end of the threads, and has 2 3/8" of notched thread. The built up base of the steerer where a crown race will install measures about 27mm in diameter.
  • The stamping on the lower steerer tube reads "TANGE 9.C / MADE IN JAPAN / CR-MO".
  •  Standard 100mm spacing. Cantilever brake mount posts still have factory protective plastic sleeves on them.
  • And, of course, the more chrome you have, the faster your bike will go: here is a big splash of it in the form of an awesome high-performance Cro-mo fork from some of the last of Schwinn's glory days.....
  • Thanks for viewing. Your questions are welcome. Payment due within 4 days of auction close, or request emergency extension.
  • Note: "Calculate" the S&H for your location simply by clicking on the "Shipping & Payments" tab and entering your zip code (domestic) or country (international) in the space provided: no need to contact the seller.

  • Good luck bidding ~ Happy Cycling
  • Please have no doubt: the price of "cheap" natural gas from fracking is actually quite exorbitant: nothing less than poisoning of the lands, waters and creatures of Earth!
