Will This Razesa Track Bike Accept A Front Brake?
I have an 80's era Razesa track bike and would like to know whether the existing fork will accept a front brake or if perhaps I need to replace the fork for one with a larger crown area if I choose to go with a front brake. There is approximately 1cm of available crown space.
I guess I also need to be concerned about a brake caliper fitting properly onto the fork so it aligns with the wheel too.

Done with winter.
Just by looking, probably not. Some hotshot machinist might try but I don't think there is room to sit it high enough to maintain adjustment in the pads. Also resell value would go down.
Better plan: find a replacement road fork with similar rake. That way it can be swapped out if you decide to sell or take it to the track.
