This is a set of Simons forks I just restored. Steve Simons produced these forks in the 1970s and was the inventor of upside-down forks used by Brad Lackey in 1982. These yellow Simons forks were made for all bikes and were used by factory riders and privateers alike. Most known for being on Steve Wise's Moto-X-Fox 125cc national winning CR125 and Marty Moates 1980 500cc USGP winning LOP YZ465. I believe Steve Simons was also the inventor of some of the mountain bike suspension.
