Point taken Alan but as the main part of the forks are well cracked and rusted, they are only fit for scrap. It could lead to some unscrupulous buyer bodging them up with filler, painting them and passing them off in good condition As they are offered there is very little thats any good

Clearly the buyer is looking to rebuild them. They are not worth 5 otherwise. Look out in the coming weeks for a shiny set of restored banana forks being offered for sale. They may put you into A&E.........
