    they look like forks of an Eliminator. Pretty sure thats the bike they came from, I'm new at muscle bikes

    I don't know who made them, but I'm positive they didn't come off of an eliminator. The pictured bike looks like it has/had 26" wheels, forks from a normal muscle bike wouldn't work. I think these are those forks people would order out of the back of comic books and the like.

    I don't know about homemade or not but the steering geometry is kind of weird, the headstock needs to be angled a bit to steer nicely. Whole bike looks odd but could be a neat project to make it better!

    Excellent link, those bring back memories of drooling on the comic ads, never got any of the good stuff but I did manage to get a rear slick when my back tire wore out!
