Stockish , They are progressive sprung with XL350 springs which are 1/2" or so longer than '72 XL250 forks, which are actually the same as '72 SL350 forks but different than '74 and later XL250-350 forks. They have custom billet preload adjusters made by TTR400 in South Africa for vintage racing CB750s. Those adjusters add an additional 1/2" of preload even in the fully out adjustment. So all toll the forks have about an inch of additional preload on the S&W progressive springs. They are filled with 15W Belray fork oil. The brace is a Tarozzi modular. All this together makes the front end feel completely different than stock and much more balanced with the Works Shocks in the rear which both bikes have but in that pic only the rear bike had installed at the time. The bikes handle really really well on pavement which is more what I built them for. Off road, my 250s would probably be a bit rough, but do amazingly well on potholed and patched pavement. These bikes will lean near the chicken strips in tight turns full of pits and big globs of asphalt that would take out most sport bikes. Which is pretty impressive for non-cartridge spindly 35mm forks and a twin shock steel swingarm.
