I recently acquired a mid- to late-1980's Alpine Cycles bicycle built by Fred Kelley and that has an interesting fork crown that I've not seen before. I assumed the crown was modified when the bike was assembled, but someone informed me that they have seen identical crowns on other bicycles.
Would anyone here have an idea what crown this might be? Thanks for any insight you might be able to offer.
