Vivitar Nikon AI lens on Nikkormat

Does anybody know if the current Vivitar AI manual focus Nikon lenses (yes I'm a cheap amateur) have the Meter fork required by old style Nikkormat / Nikomats?

Specifically, I was looking at the 28-210mm model 216555.

Maynard  McKillen   Dear Joey:
You can email them while you're at the site and ask that question.
Funny thing is, they have a photo of the 28-210 at the site, and it almost looks like it has to be the version with a Nikon mount, because I'll almost swear that's an AI fork visible at the back end of the lens...

Jose Gil   Hey thanks for the response.

I did e-mail them, but you're right. I looked at the pic and can see the mounting fork. I don't know how I missed that before.
