What Model of Fork is This?

I have this fork on a '95 or '96 Gary Fisher Mamba. They came with the bike way back when. Can anyone tell me which model this is?

The Quarda 21s came in both "neon grey" and yellow, but the caps on each of these fork legs look more like the Q21s to me. I remember the Quadra 5s as having caps more flush with the top of the crown. Either way though, they are extremely lowend.

That is interesting. The above brochure lists the steerer as 1" and mine is 1 1/8." Did they make two types?

They just mention that 1" x 160mm was the steerer on the fork they weighed. It definitely came in 1 1/8" also.

The Quarda 21 was 'neon grey', the 21R was yellow, and both were set up from the 5, all would be totally outclassed by even the cheapest forks available today, and spares for the old Quadra series are just about non-existant.
