The forks look like they're off a 1980 Gios with the coins missing - and they will be Columbus SL if so

Olympics were hand built by Paul Coupe at Olympic Cycles in
Nottingham - the shop closed a few years ago but they used to sponsor Beauvale CC back in the day.

I had an Olympic frame custom built for me in 1987 and I still have it today!
