Servi's (and WLC's) used a fork nearly identical to the bit twins, except for a 7/8" neck stem. In other words, 'outside' rockers, interchangeable wheel, bigtwin brake, axle, etc.
It may not be AMCA correct, but it's a whole lot better, particularlywhen it comes time for hub service, brake service, etc., as the parts are more available, and often cheaper.
