Thanks guys. For some reason I can't add another photo from my computer, I was going to upload another fork photo.
I think squid is correct, the advert above shows "classic type fork" and this does not look like the original flat blades I'm used to seeing. My 1966 all original tandem has the electro-forged head tube and flat forks. I'd like to add a classic Schwinn cruiser to my stable but the prices are pretty strong for them.
It's very reasonably priced but I think I'll pass. I'll have to pony up for the more classic version that wets my appetite. The look of the electro-forged head tubes is the only look I want, I like the smooth look that is very original.
I've got too many bikes so I need to make sure anything I add is something I really want, not just a whim.
Ah, here we go. It also looks more square across the top of the fork than the blade forks do. I knew something looked off about it. I agree it looks original as Bass noted.
