Tried again, the pictures worked!

The forks look like a replacement from a Raleigh. Your description of the headbadge (headsticker?) agrees with mine.

I wish I knew more. I can only speculate as to why White Front was selling them-they seemed to buy out odd lots and close outs. I got a genuine Wham-O Wheelie Bar there for a few dollars when they originally sold for $20. I wonder if they bought a whole load of them from a distressed wholesaler or something. The one I had was no great work of art, but plenty respectable in light of its contemporaries. I kept mine only a short while and sold it to a friend. Shortly thereafter it was stolen. That was the last one I had seen or heard of until your post.
