Fork an a C&V group!

Just a fun picture I took while photographing Shadowfax.

The RED fork is who's?

The WHITE fork?

The BLUE fork?

The GREY fork?

The BLACK fork?

They are ALL C&V members forks!

All here now, and soon to be dispersed about the continent.
I wonder if any of them will ever cross paths again?

My guess is that the blue one is from the infamous Corky, soon to be residing right next door to me under ownership of Cyclotoine.

1999?
Not likely, as I was getting married that year.
Most likely done by Alan Nymarc or Joe's Bike Painting in '99.

To know for sure, check the left chainstay, near the BB. If I painted it, my MTB initials* are located there.
Sometimes with the year, but not usually.
On rare occasion, I have initialed the top end of the downtube at the headtube jucture.

*see attached pic

The red is PastorBob's, the light blue is definitely Corky.

I was thinking possibly NAHBS (if you were going), but the Cinderella ride is a good PlanB!

'Course, if you want to do that ride as a Maiden Voyage, you'd probably better bring an old favorite saddle with you.

Ah, I do indeed intend on going to NAHBS. Better firm up my plans in that case!

The white fork is for the early Raleigh Pro - USAzorro's, correct? (Edit: Just saw that you mention it as being Shadowfax)

I'll take a guess and say the grey fork is Dirtdrop's Peugeot.
