NOT A SOLICITATION OF WORK as there are several far more experienced and skilled framebuilders on the list than me, but I could build a Teledyne-compatible fork, as many people could, and live near a painter (Dick Speece, aka Acme Paint and former business partner to Mark Dinucci) who can literally match the paint color off of a cereal box if a customer asks. Brian B could certainly nail the paint match and I'll bet he could modify a crown and blades to replicate the appearance of a Teledyne fork.
