Especially for people who are scouring google for that answer. As I was.
Here is the answer.
Which telescopic fron forks fit honda c90's? Answer = cg 125, most cb's up to 125.
There are others that are much harder to come by. Cd50 etc but those are less common in England.
The cg and cb front end's have a larger front wheel than the cub so that could be an issue. I am going to try mating a cub front wheel to the cg forks. In this pic I have cb100 forks with a cub wheel jammed in for tests. The cb 100 forks were off a later disk model and I don't want the disk.

Trade mark. In 1906 they did a bit of motorcycle dabbling using an SOS engine which they manufactured
on behalf of the company Smith's O'Saltley.
They were involved in many things in the following years, including racing motorcycles in the isle of Mann TT's
and making bomb fuses during world war 1?(On Two Wheels vol 6)
The company Humphries and Dawes used a few different engines
