A Matthews...while not necessarily rare...at least "sought after":

My TX-500 assortment:

My old late gen Two Wheelers. Now on Coasty's sweet Stroker. A couple of years ago a guy had several sets of NOS red and NOS blue. I wonder if your red one came from the same guy?

I think I've asked this before but how can you tell the difference between the Speedo dual-drops and the Motopro fork?

The drop out on a Moto Pro are mounted higher. There is a Moto Pro on the Museum that has them if you want to check them out.

Every time I see that single dropout Speedo fork I get the feeling it is on backwards. What a weird dropout!

I've got a MotoPro fork to match my frame but I DON'T have a Speedo fork!!! Something is seriously wrong with that!! Just FYI...the orange fork is custom. I do see the difference now that you pointed it out.

I'll get some good pics of my MP fork and put it in the database here.

I know that Moto 1 forks look similar to Speedo but have small holes in the drop out, Speedos are solid.

Would like to see the Moto Pro forks

SKYWAY TUFF fork. The forks were only made for 6 months in late 78 through early 79

This is fun.

Some of these, like the Powerlites, I wasn't even sure were ever made. (I started a thread about them a long time ago and no one posted any up.)

How about the Superbyke fork (I think it was.) that looked like JMCs, but was only advertised with a line drawing?

Those Skyways in the box are sweet.

These are pretty rare. Not as sexy as most of the forks already posted, but they are, indeed, hard to find.

24" Torkers. Took me 5 years to find these.
