  6. in the early days dad (frank hipkin)used AMC forks, then when those ran out he designed, made and sold the leading link. then they tried the mp forks which were no good then ron humphry came down and asked dad to test the r.e.h fork which sprite used, then further down the line sprite made and produced their own forks wheel hubs at their foundry.
