One of the first suspension forks made. Picked it up in a trade a couple days ago from a friend. He bought it from Doug directly. 100 mm spacing

They are superb. Im a big fan of bradbury stuff with a number of bits i my collection, but they are something else!

The metal is going to come up damn well,most of it is unblemished though the rear looks a little worse for wear,should clean up for the most part.The little burrs one the top will come off easily enough but the dent[:?] i think is best left well alone,clean it up certainly but dont try to file it out prior to using wet & dry
