Tange 2B forks?

Any body come across a set of Tange steel chrome forks with 2B stamped on the steerer. The forks are chromed and weigh 768g.

Any information would be appreciated

OK...i've got some Tange 2B forks but let me widen the question....2B tubing is that the same as Tange#2 or Tange Champion No 2 tubing?

No idea, but 768gr sounds like an okay weight to me. Wouldn't be surprised if it is #2.

Me again

So I weighed two #2 forks:

one fork with aero crown
one fork with flat crown

both are chromed, both are for a 59 frame

both forks have a weight of 780 gram (incl race)

Btw both forks don't mention '2C' on the steerer.

One says 9C and the other 9H. I wouldn't be surprised if the 1st digit represents year (1979) and the 2nd ...I don't know.

A Tange #1 fork I weighed about a year ago. 760 gram. Fully chromed, with race, for 58cm frame.
