Found in a dusty warehouse in china...

I first thought indy, but then they didn't have a separate un boltable brace?

Probably pretty low end. But seemingly pretty lightweight?

They are of the Quadra range...

And it is believed from previous chat on them, that they are an OEM version of Quadra, I forget which model and year though.
Even forgotten which OEM brand.

My first thought was Quadra 5 or 10.
Then I saw the description stated oil/spring.
But I'm guessing the description is incorrect.

It is the basic one, the Quadra 5. The description is incorrect, there is no oil inside to control the rebound. Chineese advertisment are always imprecise with materials, functions etc etc and more etc.

I didn’t think the 5’s had the adjuster knobs on top, but been awhile since I saw/ owned one of those.

My quadra 5s were silver. Preloaded adjusters only up top.

They look a lot like the Quardra 10s I bought in '95, except I think mine were silver. They were mainly OE and had preload adjustment. Not a great fork but I knew straight away that suspension was the future.

My initial thought is that it is a copy, not related to RS at all..
