Here is my kokopelli, finished when I dropped into a stock of Suntour NOS stuff... Iwas planning to list it in a BOTM but it would get trashed, poor thing :(

I remember that stem from way back but can't place it. It looks really trick, what kind is it?

Is it a Doug Bradbury Manitou?

Critcal stem: a mixed bag: really comfortable, because it absorbs shocks, stunning, but flexy when wiggling the bike from side to side. A bit tall, though, looking for a ninety degrees one

Yes, I sent this pic to Yetifan. For the accutrax, this P2 was the closest thing I found. Swapped it for a Marzocchi xc 600, I couldn't bother changing the seals.
Actually, straight bladed forks are really rare in Italy. In the old days we all used curved forks, like ritchey o specy. Finding an accutrax is diffcult, and I quite like the feeling of this Konas (how cana straight bladed fork be so compliant).
Yes, because this bike gets ridden quite often.
