KHE Premium Lagger '97 metallic orange building

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m307/The13thBomberman/imagejpg3_zpsc867c8d3.jpg
I bought it late '90 and the OG parts were :
Frame : KHE Premium Lagger 97 designed by Jesse Puente in metallic orange
Fork : Dragonfly Mosher in chrome (in picture) 1" threadless. Dropouts were machined to 3/8" to 14mm by a professional friend.
Stem : Dragonfly(?) in silver (pix)
Headset : Dragonfly(?) in chrome. Dismounted it few weeks ago. Never seen this system : there're loose balls bearing ONLY in the lower part of the headset. The upper part is compound by a conic ring.
Handlebar : Hoffman Low Drag 2 in chrome (not in pix)
Grips : Hoffman in black
Front wheel : Araya 7X rim 48h in chrome radial laced with Primo Son of the Bomb hub 14mm in silver
Rear wheel : Araya 7X rim 48h in chrome radial laced with Primo Bomb hub 14mm in silver and 12T sprocket
Tires : ACS True in black with gum walls
Cranks : Tioga Task Force 1p black
Chainwheel : GENERIX 32T in silver and black
Chain : Izumi in chrome
Chain tensioners : Primo in silver
Pedals : Shimano DX first generation 1/2" in gold
Front brake : Dia Compe FS990 in black
Rear brake : Dia Compe AD990 in black
Levers : Diatech
Rotor : Fishbone UFO in black/silver with upper and lower Fishbone cables in black
Seat : Primo Hemorroid in black/black
Seatpost : Primo Rod layback in chrome
Seatclamp : DK 2 bolts in silver

My project is to build a bike with as much as possible orange parts. When impossible, I'd like to find black parts. I already got these following parts :
1) handlebar : Diamondback in orange (from UK)
2) seat : a generic orange/back (in pix, from UK)
3) tires : Savage Cycles in orange (in pix, from UK)
4) pedals : Diamondback 9/16" in orange (in pix, from UK)

I already planed to buy (items found buy need money:D) :
1) a Xposure crankset in metallic orange (ebay seller from USA)
2) a Cult/Vans pair of grips in orange
3) a pair of Dia Compe Tech 77 in black (Porkshop)
4) a nice looking KHE sprocket 33T (as far as I can't find any 32T now) in black. (ebay seller from Germany)
5) an halflink orange chain.

So for this bike, if I'd like to build a perfect bike (but I should never go for it. Cf my signature), I'm looking for these following items :
1) a cromoly fork with u-brakes mounts in metallic orange (or black if not nice looking). 0° offset should be nice. A KHE or Dragonfly Mike fork should be perfect but 1" threadless is hard to find now!!!
2) a nice looking 1" threadless top load stem in black
3) a 2-bolts seatclamp in black
4) a 25.4mm layback seatpost in orange. Saw a DK one but it isn't a layback
5) a set of spokes for a radial lacing in black or orange depending on the new fork's color)

The chrome fork makes this bike a little weird, imo. neutralroll

When installing the front pegs, I noticed the Primo "son of a bomb" axle isn't 14mm as I said but 12,7mm (1/2"). I've to take care not to loose its nuts!!!!
Waiting for a very nice crankset... smile

Re: KHE Premium Lagger '97 metallic orange building

I'm thinking about painting a khe fork bought lately. I'll paint only parts if I can't find them in Orange nor black.
