Does anyone know where I can get a steel 700c disc fork with a 1" steerer?
Every one I've found so far has a 1 1/8" steerer and I don't think (I really must check) it will fit on my 30 year old Raleigh Record Ace.

I don't want carbon. It melts in the rain, don't you know!
FCN 3: Raleigh Record Ace fixie-to be resurrected sometime in the future
FCN 4: Planet X Schmaffenschmack 2- workhorse
FCN 9: B Twin Vitamin - winter commuter/loan bike for trainees

I'm hungry. I'm always hungry!

    I would doubt it - most makers switched to 1.125" forks about 12 years ago before disc brakes became commonplace. Only solution might be to get someone to make you a pair or to get a bigger diameter headtube brazed to your frame- I wouldn't recommend getting tabs brazed to a old road fork as the fork blades aren't designed to take the stresses. It'll still cost you a couple of hundred either way - the same price as a Planet-X Kaffenback frame and forks
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
