Subject: [CR]speaking of wing nuts

I was out today and walking back to my car when I went past a bike locked to a parking meter. It was a brand I didn't recognize, the bike was 1020 steel and it looked like it was from the 80's, nothing special. What caught my eye were the wing nuts on the front axle. I did a doulbe take and went over to inspect them closer. They were definately alloy and very modern looking. They looked like they were of good quality. I didn't see a maker, I was tempted to take one of to further inspect it but I figured I wouldn't want anyone touching one of my bikes so I left it at that.

Does anyone know of any companies making such wing nuts for bicycles?
