Look like 45 Forks by the rockers. The casting marks should be turned to the main forks, however they may be polished off or not from the original forks anyway. The zerks for the spring fork are later style, so 39 up I would say.

zerk fittings on the outside are later model knucklehead springer or 45" model (depending on the stem size)
That had the OEM legs cut off and replaced with longer ones.

As far as the casting numbers go on the front leg often times when they are chromed they casting numbers are sanded away.

Since they have been cut extended and chromed it doesn't really matter at this point if they are OEM or not any value in them being OEM is long gone with those kind of modifications

Right on, thanks Steve & Syndicate! Always get weird when casting numbers are missing, so I appreciate the extra eye
