A real beauty, but way too tall for me.

I gotta ask those that know..., are those just standard Tange big forks bolted to the frame from new, or are they a later addition sprayed to match....?

I would never have thought that, a tet built frame etc, would it be because many were spec'd with a Manitou or Rockshox, this would have been an easy option should the new owner want rigid...?
