These are a bit of a "Psylostein" of a fork!

They have the uppers of a pair of Psylo SL U-Turn 80-125mm travel forks with Tullio 20mm axle disc brake only lowers.
They have an alloy 1 1/8 steerer (Hence SL), and steerer length is just over 200mm.
They have a lock out switch on the top of the right leg which works as it should and rebound tuning at the bottom of the right leg.
I needed some stiffness I wasn't getting from the original donor forks (RS Psylo SL U-Turns (80-125mm)) but wanted to keep the travel options. I saw a piece on a forum about a guy who switched lowers on a pair to Tullio 20mm and praised the extra stiffness in them no end! And they have served me well for what must be at least 6 or 7 years without fault.
They have some marks, what forks of this age don't? And most of them are on the donor 9mm QR lowers also included in this sale. (See pics)
There are no rattles or other worries with the forks and no oil build up on the stanchions. Both the lock out and the U-TURN work great (see video). There is no rubbing around the stanchions from misalignment bumps or knocks. There are some small marks on the stanchions (see pics) but these have and do not effect the working function of the fork. There is a bit of rub to the crown from old disc brake hose.
Not been used much for about 28 months but I have mostly been riding my other bike in this time. I have put them on my light weight ride and they have worked admirably for the last two weeks. No issues at and travel height and lock out works well.
The screw in 20mm axle is a bit fiddly to get out but works well as do the axle quick release levers.
All in all they're in great condition for there age and work well.
I would recommend at least a selfie service/checkup/oil top up (as they're so easy to work on) but I always do when buying or selling.
I have now purchased some RS SID WC's and have come to the decision that its time to share these great forks with someone who will use them.
