Default BOI fork question

I am having a replica BOI fork made for a '93 Fat - the frame has the blue / turquoise decals and the fork will have the blue fade as per the '93 catalogue.

As I have researched, the Eddie decal on the top of the fork leg is facing outwards. Did this fork have the decal in blue to match the frame?

Anal attention to detail I know.

I don't recall any blue Yo decals from the Somerville days but I suppose they could have existed - not likely though

Same here. Lighter colored frames = black outlines and white bones. Darker colored frames = grey and white, like below.

The fork-top Yo Eddys I've had have all faced out, but I have seen a few (maybe repaints? I dunno) online that faced back toward the rider. The colored part of the downtube "FAT" decal can be pink, yellow, blue or what have you, but the Yo Eddys on top of the fork legs seem to correspond to the letter's line color, not the fill color.

....happy to have finally found a clean 80s Fat Team Comp with a box crown fork

My BOI's face back towards the rider. I bought the fork from a factory dealer to replace my bent Wicked fork back when Fat City was still in operation. Black, with white decals.

Mine face outward, as shown in the above photo by yo-Nate-y. That way it can be viewed from the front and from the rider's perspective. Original from factory.
