Default fork size question

Can someone help me out here. Will this size fork fit correctly on a 1993 small/medium Yo Eddy? If not, what size should I be looking for.

From Seller: The Crown to Axle Height is 405mm (15 15/16").

Should be fine.

The crown to axle height isn't really an issue (and is the same as the forks on my 93 Yo). The forks will be the correct height for the frame since neither are suspenion corrected.

The issue is steerer length. In the auction it is indicated the steerer measures 132 mm. The forks on my M Yo have a 120 mm steerer with a Chris King gripnut headset (which has a low stack height). You may well have to get a bike shop to thread the steerer tube down a bit further and possibly trim the steerer slighty. Shouldn't be a problem really since I don't think the steerer is butted (stand to be corrected on this).
