Thanks PJO, that could be the one! I'm assuming it'll need a service but is it all working OK? Whereabouts are you?
Cheers

Hi Phil,
I'm in Hobart.
It's not a bells and whistles fork but it is in good condition and functions as it should, I'll post up some pictures later this evening.

Yes it is likely to need a service, I bought it with the intention of putting it on a bike about 5-6 years ago (maybe more?) and never got around to it because I sold the bike before getting the appropriate headset to fit a tapered steerer. Has been sitting in the shed since. I also wanted a fork I could extend to 120mm travel but this is an OEM fork and so not possible (at least that is what I was told).

I think that will fit this project nicely. Maybe the fact that it is OEM 100mm means that it doesn't have the spacer (which they normally come with and can be removed to make them 120). That's fine though as it's going on an old Anthem.

My understanding with Manitou is that there are two sets of uppers for this fork and the set on this fork only allows for 100mm travel.

Hey @ausdb, I might have an older set of 32s that would fit the bill in the garage/roof/somewhere if your still looking (and @PJO and @4wdphil have settled and happy for us to tag on the back of this).
