Wanted: New Fork or Bike

Quinn told us

just took a spin through the park. suddenly it wasn’t tracking strait. glad it failed gracefully.

That’s the front of a a 50-yr old Nishiki frame that spent most of its live in storage. I said a good builder could make a fork for 3, 4 hundred or probably time to get a new frame.

What do you recommend he replace it with? We’re into 333 Fab these days or for production like this Novara. Salsa Vaya too? What else in Steel? Raleigh Record Ace?

For a cyclists that tours with Wheeled Migration, think he needs an artisan bike from a NorCal builder or a Rawland. Whatever bike chosen, make sure that spoke bell goes back on it.
