Earle: Never quite seen anything quite like these forks ends on a Brit bike, but there were so many individual builders in Britain, who knows what some of their odd workmanship might look like. A very creative bunch !! I'd love to see more pics.

Now that I have recovered from Cirque (my first, but by no means my last), I'm trying to take care of other business.

Andy Muzi of Yellow Jersey bikes here in Madison has an English track bike with lots of chrome, but no brand identification except distinctive ends on the fork. I've posted a picture on my Website and hope somebody here will recognize the ends.

The rest of the bike is chrome, with wrapover stays vaguely Carltonish (I'll get some more pictures soon), a Chater Lea cottered crank and an adjustable stem.
