Interesting - that looks exactly the same fork that is on my '83? SP - full chrome, with the same mid-blade mount and same crown. Good to know that it might be original.

Thanks - I do have an '83 Voyager that I have converted to 700c, and love the ride. Perhaps a 650b/ Rando build for that is in the future. Have been thinking about doing a Rando bike for awhile now.
