HI there to bring some light in the "lesser known fork universe" this thread may help some of us for fitting adequate forks with our frames of restoration.

So for a start maybe you guys can help identify these two types (here straight unicrown fillets) supposingly beeing made in UK examples.

Names of builders who made similar forks would be Paul from Rock Lobster or later Vicious Cycles who constructed tapered beauts but these here have no reference whether they were actually really Overbury build (as both sellers have guessed).

First pictured fork is stamped 89 and has columbus dropouts
2nd fork of reference with Campa dropouts and originating along from an OB frameset

Does anyone know who else made straight forks out of tapered tubing fillet braze style which could resemble these quoted works ?

helmut-burns.. seems to be a name for example
