Default Walt fork for the buckshaver!

I've been trying to get my buckshaver to handle well for a while now and I think I finally nailed it! I had Walt works make this beautiful custom steel fork and I couldn't be happier! Now all i need is patience to wait for more dry singletrack! Hope everyone has a good weekend, cheers!

Is it the angle, or is that a longer than normal A-C for a rigid fork on a bike of that era?

Cool that you found something that works!

Seems to be in the right neighborhood, Buck is from the Judy era.

I requested a 410. I remember seeing that length spec'd on a buckshaver geometry sheet somewhere...
