I thought there were only two types of fork s on bantams, I saw a d10 sport today with something in between light and heavy.The seal holder is different, it doesn`t have an o ring?

The Bantam D10 Sport uses a chromed version of the lightweight D7 fork, but there are 2 versions of the oilseal holder nut with one slightly taller. The holder is hidden in this photo.
The forks shrouds have the lower half the same as standard D7 bikes, but the top is unique to the model and Triumph Bantam cubs with a wide lug and separate headlight between.

I have a B175. They are close to those, but my lower fork that the seal holder screws onto, well the thread is cut into the diameter of the tube, if you know what I mean. The forks that I saw the other day, the thread is on a built up collar ,probably about a half an inch greater diameter?? They have the lugs near the top as a sport has. I may have seen somthing unique.......a prototype?
