Good eye.  I saw that bike and didn't even notice.  I suppose if I wanted to buy it I would have given it a better looking over, but I imagine a lot of people wouldn't even notice it.  :oof:

With those dropouts Sean???? Ive not ever seen Non US LG with those dropouts (but I dont know dick about Freestyle either) but the Trickmaster forks I have seen were vert stamped with genuine SE 85 dropouts.

I'm not sure, but since there are versions of this type of wheel with no vents... maybe it's just style.  I like these wheels quite a bit actually. This bike is cool in spite of the forks.

Didn't standing gear forks have standing gear stickers applied?

No sir. The "Standing Gear" was just a slang term. They still always used LG decals

I thought the non USA Standing Gear forks had the insert for threaded pegs near the bottom? 

 

Cool bike regardless. It's not a freestyle quad, so maybe someone tried to freestlye it out back in the day..I seem to remember fake standing gears from back in the 80s

Ya, you are right, Trick Master forks had threaded holes for pegs.

....and Im not saying Sean is wrong at all. Im just looking for him to shed more light. There were overseas LG but these dropouts are what Ive seen on the full out copy forks.

I thought trickmaster forks had peg holes a few inches up from the drop outs.  

 

I am lost on this standing gear stuff.

yeah, that's interesting but it doesn't really address the issue of no peg bosses, as seen in the standing gears in the auction.  

 

Also, his detail shots don't really show the drop out details... can't discern the hold pattern in the drops, nor if they are sort of that diamond shape drop or the more round ones.

 

it would also be interesting to know if Spinner was the only manufacturer of the landing gear clones... I mean, we have plenty of examples of fake Landing Gears that are not the standing gear variety. It would be kind of interesting to know if multiple sources were knocking them off.

Rob, how many non-SE varieties of Landing / Standing Gears have you identified?

Trickmasters have 2 versions of spinner landing gear. The stamped 86 being the much rarer one.

 

Forks 10ish known both types. 7 unstamped and 3 stamped.

The forks off this quadangle are now on ebay.
