    Mystery track fork, can anyone identify this?

    Picked up this fork a few months ago with some random parts, everything else was for geared bikes and even though I usually don't deal with track stuff but this stood out as a quality piece and I couldn't pass it up. Can anyone identify it by the markings on the steerer tube and or the crown and fork end detail? I really love the paint, it's this blue bowling ball glitter job and I asked if there was a frame but apparently this fork has been around so much that its origins are a mystery.

    I have no clue what I'll do with it, so far it's just one of those curiosities that lay around with all the other bike stuff to pick up and fondle every once in a while and today I decided to finally put pictures up to see if anyone knew what it was. Any and all help is appreciated!

    Excellent! Thanks for the quick response, I knew it was something hand built. Now the trouble of finding a frame for it.

    Glad I could help. As long as the headtube isn't too tall, it should work with any 1" threaded frame
