Fat BOI Fork Variation

I am curious to learn about fork variations with the BOI forks. I have seen some with 1" threadless steerers, 1-1/8 steerers and even one without the mini gussets on the back. I am told this was a special order request. Here to learn and fairly new to Fat. Thanks all!
 
There you go -


OEM original BOI forks are very rare and make $$$s when they come up for sale every few years. Yo forks are more common and fit 92 and earlier Yos which are NOT suspension corrected. Fully rigid FATs being highly desirable now means that many new owners are getting repros made by Igleheart ( Ex FFC ) amongst others ~ $550. The original BOI forks are made from butted tubing and give a lovely lively ride and precision handling. Modern repros tend to use plain gauge tubing and dont ride quite as nice as the originals from my experience.

It could be repro down to DB tubing and whatever any other detail you want. If not by Igleheart then look for another builder. Costly? Yes... but it won´t need to be replaced eventually unlike expensive susp forks or unavailable 26in rims and tires. Anything steel frame wise can be repro.
