Not GT, I don't think.  Wild guess....Redline?


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Re: Gary Turner forks? Early

Redline was my first guess. A knowledgeable member said maybe CyclePro or Cooks Bros.

Re: Gary Turner forks? Early

They look similar to the superbyke cooks style "impala" forks - but the weld quality screams of dime store offerings

They def are not GT or Cooks or Bottema

I think Marcos called it, they're Superbyke 'cook style' impala forks, the weld spacing and the size of the holes in the drops are a dead giveaway. Keep in mind, there's another version of the Impala fork which had fork legs similar to JMC.



Sorry about the 'pics', they're the only ones I could find of the 'aero-styled' Impala forks.

back in the day we chopped stingrays to race with, saved up for ashtabula parts and dreamed of fmf, dg, redline, and cook bros parts and frames.

Re: Gary Turner forks? Early

I'm curious why you started another 'name it' thread on the same set of forks? You know it's most likely a set of Superbyke Impala Forks (the cook styled versions)......right? Which in my opinion is a much greater find.big_smile

I'd go along with Impalas.

The battery is discharging, the oil temperature is very high, the oil pressure is very low, water temperature is off the chart and I am running out of petrol...but the clock is correct.
