Do you have the frame to match the Chameleon BOI?
No, but now that you asked, this might help date my fork as well, as this BOI was sold to a company called Ionic to be mated with their Johnny Rotten ss frames in the late 90's
there's a review on mtbr of one back in 1999, and it states that one of the favorite parts of his ride is the "pimpy" Fat City fork:http://www.mtbr.com/cat/bikes/bike-rigi ... 99crx.aspx
perhaps, Fat City Cycles, after their move to NY, sold out all the last of their BOI forks since, as Rody stated above, the "need" for front suspension made it obsolete. Companies like Ionic probably bought a bunch to mate with their frames...this is pure speculation on my part.

Good thread Rob. Heres something to consider also. I have a Yo fork on my 92 Yo Eddy and the axle to crown measurement is 390 mm. The later Yo fork i have on my Ti is 410mm. Both have Campy drop outs and both have threaded steerers. When I bought the longer fork for the Ti it had a decal on the leg the same as in your pic. We need to keep digging and work on a definative timeline of what changes were made and when.
The axle to crown measurement of my BOI (green), (measured to where the lower race would sit), is 420mm. The leg itself from axle to top, (yo eddy decal), measures a bit under 410mm.
These same measurements on my Yo Eddy (red) fork come out to 390mm (like your 92), with the legs coming in at approximately 370mm.
The Yo Eddy has campy dropouts; I can't make out the dropouts on the BOI.
It looks like my Yo Eddy was one of the first, while my BOI was one of the last; everything else would fall somewhere in the middle
We need to know the date on the very first one and the date of the very last. Though our forks would fit with what Rody wrote and I quoted from fatcogs.
