Eddy Merckx EX Titanium 1996

6/4 ti frame built by Litespeed running 10 speed Campagnolo. Came with period correct Kerstral EMS fork, which is the only carbon on the bike. Would love to replace Kestral with a steel fork, hope one day to find a Merckx Columbus Max fork as used on a MX Leader, but as I need at least a 230mm steerer could be a long/unsuccessful wait. Elegant and smooth riding big mile munching bike.

More Info:
If anyone has a 1 inch threaded Columbus Max fork with minimum 230mm steerer for sale, please let me know. Any colour considered as I'll likely repaint it. Help a brother make this bike into the carbon-free zone it deserves.
