I assume that you have a copy of the Webb Forks catalogue, Edward, as they are readily available on the net  but if you don’t let me know. I often wondered what became of H C Webb & Company which made the forks (not to mention the hubs and brake drums) for so many different motorcycles at  press-works in Witton Lane, Aston, Birmingham. I guess that the demise of the girder fork must have knocked a big hole in its business although it seems to have been making motorcycle spring forks in the 1960’s. A bit of research discloses that the company’s origins go back as far as the middle of the 19th century and apart from cycle components for both motorcycles and push bikes, it also manufactured lawn mowers.
