    Pre-power bulge Reba’s (say 2009 or earlier) have v-brake mounts and can be spaced down to 80mm or even lower.. should be able to find some within that budget & they’ll actually be a good fork too, pop a WTD on the classifieds.

    I have been restoring a Scott Tacana, from the late 90s / early 00s, that was quite neglected. Next on the list are some forks as the current Manitou Spyder-R’s have had it. As I have a Scott Scale for XC duties, I have set the Tacana up to be a decent trail bike.

    What 80mm forks would you recommend, ideally on a budget of £100 maximum? Have been browsing on ebay mainly. They will also need to have v brake mounts as I am running Magura HS33’s which I would like to keep.

    Some Marzocchi bombers of that vintage is the obvious choice.

    <spam>I have some Fox F80 RLT with v brake mounts (missing the actual posts) that I no longer have a use/bike/home for which would be in budget</spam>

    I was tempted by some old Bomber Z1’s but I seem to remember them being known for being quite heavy. All the reba’s I have seen on ebay are disc only so will continue to keep a look out for some with v brake mounts.

    Wilbo,
    I have two sets of Manitou forks from this era – a set of red SX carbons (incredibly light) and a set of yellow SXTIs. They are both in excellent condition and ready to use, both are V brake only.

    If either of these interest you let me know and I’ll take pictures etc – well within your budget

    CRC are doing manitou forks brand new on sale for £120-150 but disc brake only, not sure if that’s any use?

    I’ve some old Fox F80’s here v or disc
    In need of a service and one leg has started leaking oil last week so seals etc as well but if your local(ish) and I don’t have to post, and so you can see what your getting before committing I would do them very cheap
    Prob not worth posting, cost more than they are worth

    I’ve loved my Fox F80s – as there are two offered in this thread, I would go that route.

    what color is the scott – I have some metallic green V2 bombers (with the big metal brace) with matching 110mm Danny stem that would be nice and retro if the scott is the right color.

    Here they are, with HS33s, on an Explosif :

    TurneyGuy, the bike is white, orange and a purple / grey, so I was hoping for some white or orange folks ideally, or potentially black.
