The lugged flat fork crown carried over from the Lemans RS and the '85 Prestige. On the Lemans RS it was Mangalloy, and may have been on the Elite RS. The '85 Prestige fork, same design, but made of Prestige tubing wth a chromed crown.

For what it's worth, I was going to swap out the Mangalloy fork on a Lemans RS for an older CF fork with an alloy steerer, but the weight difference was about an ounce. The lugged fork with painted cutout got my vote, and stayed.
