Re: 1979 Powerlite

Hey
Are you still looking for a fork?
I have one.  Drop out has a crack but it is sound enough for a rebuild.....

Re: 1979 Powerlite

Powerlites and Peddlepowers came with their own forks, not Torker forks. Powerlite forks were made with 7/8" OD tubing, while Torkers were made with 1" OD.

Those are Mongoose forks though, I agree.
