Hi guys!
Someone could help me to identify this unknown fork?
I have found it on a MuddyFox Rock'n'Roll frame.
Thank you!

Decals look to be muddy fox so factory fitted, they were playing about with suspension of their own around that era.

Lack of muddy fox in the catalogue section doesn't help.

Great idea..
I have already written to MuddyFox for help me to identify the frame, because it's different from the classic Rock'n'Roll but they answer me that "Unfortunately our system only supplies information for the current items that are in stock."

so I think that ask another time to Muddy for the fork is a bit useless

Checker Pig had a fork similar to this one. Have a look at the only brochure in the archive.

the construction appears to be slightly different. I think the manufacturer name is Aitec-S.

That Sticha fork certainly might be the DNA source for the Checker Pig/ Muddy Fox one.
The mechanical Hope brake would put it around 1989/90...

Looks like the Checker pig version has a shorter elastomer stack than the MF one. 50mm claimed in the CP catalogue, so presumably the MF one is later than 1992.
