Enjoying this thread. Love that Alpinestar, remember when they first introduced it, with the radical elevated chainstays. nice
Thought I better post my lastest retro C. Brought the frame back from the U.S, still finishing off the small stuff.

I've just picked up an Avalanche but can't identify the forks. Their either Mag 21's or Early Judy's but without decals I can't seem to identify them. Keen on rebuilding them and putting on new decals but need to know which one first. Any ideas?
The Mags were airsprung and the Judys either coil or elastomer.
If you can get a photo up someone may be able to add more.

All three of those forks in the photo are Judys. Mags are slimmer/thinner (both sliders and stanchions) and taper down to the dropout/fork end. They look far less "robust" than a Judy (which now look pretty spindly compared to modern 32mm+ forks).
