Hey all - I've come across a vintage NOS 3rensho fork crown that I'm pondering having built into a custom fork; can anyone recommend a shop/builder that could build this out for me? Thanks-

We need to assume that all the critical dimensions of the crown are compatible with the use. Tire clearance. Brake hole aspects, steerer spec, blade profile.

It's been my experience that this is not the forum that many pro builders hang out in. I hope you find the right one who motivated to do this for you. Andy
