Default Yo fork

Hello,
I found a bike builder who is willing to make me a fork for my 91 Yo and wonder where I could find build specs. for one. He would like to hold a fork, but that is not going to happen, why else would I want one made. Any chance someone might lead me to a spec. sheet anyplace on the net.
Thanks,
Slap.

Might want to check and see if Chris' patent is still valid before copying that fork. There are variations of it on the market that are not exact duplicates that skirt the issue.
Good luck
Scott

Its got to be one of the most ripped-off original FAT City Cycles designs in the bike trade. Chris should have made a fortune from it.

That design patent expired years ago.
