Obviously not Trials forks, look Suzuki-ish to me. There is probably a logo or casting # somewhere on the clamps.

Possibly from a Chinese clone called a Flywing MX150 from 2004clone.thumb.jpg.24e2caf0537751ac4995beaae9e9e144.jpg

Kawasaki, Suzuki, Honda and Yamaha have all used similar types to the ones you show in your first picture. It was a novel way of getting more suspension travel without raising the height of the bike at the front end. The design was first seen on MX bikes and then migrated to Enduro and Trail bikes. You might find that the extended lower part of the leg may foul on rocks and other trials type going, which would be a disadvantage. They probably weigh a bit more than the normal forks.

Thanks @section swept @ourian @potto @2stroke4stroke @faussy

you guys are spot on .. it seems like suzuki DR200 etc , i got them for some part exchange. i would like to use them if possible. i have another drum brake wheel as well 

if i want to use it on bantam . i would like to lower them a bit. i think they still very high for trials bike. 

thanks again for your quick help 

Regards

Get hold of some steel bottoms from something like a B40 or heavy weight cub and turn the forks down to fit inside
