Thanks for the interest. Yes, that's a replacement fork I bought for road use . I do have the original fork and have added some pictures with the details you've asked for. I think you're right about mid -70's now that I think about it. My friend would have graduated high school around '75 and probably worked at the Spoke around then.

BTW, I saw a pair of Land Sharks from your shop touring Italy last August.
