At the time everyone thought anti-dive was a good thing, up to the late 80's early 90's(?) people were experimenting with all sorts of anti-dive tech, it was discovered that brake dive (into corners) actually helped by increasing steering angle (among other things). That would be why you saw a sudden drop in the use of non-telescoping forks.

That being said, those forks look really cool. I always loved the look of the old Greeves and Cotton racers...

(I could be totally wrong about the dates, I remeber reading about anti-dive stuff in magazines into the late 80's?)

Look at the caliper position, think it's floating? If not I wonder if it lifts the front every time you grab some brake.
