    Pictured below is my James ML, the forks on the folding bike have a central rib as well as a rib on the outer edges. You can see that my James forks are flat in the middle so therefor I do not think that the forks on the above bike are from a James ML, they look very similar ,with the spring but not exactly the same.

    Here you see the Suspension Links quite clearly. I reckon there is a connection with the original thread photo!

    I think you mean Royal Enfield Flying Flee, but there not from that model as the Flee's forks had cut outs in the middle of the stamping and these are solid.

    Looking at your ML, it looks like a post war model rather than a WW2 WD James ML. There are many diffrences between the WD and Civvy post war versions, I'm not sure if the fork links and the side of the brake hub were diffrent or not.
