Thanks for the kind words. I like it too. Zamfir, yes, they are the original Type 2 forks.

I will sort a couple more pics.

A few things have changed meanwhile: the Race Face EX 4130 stem is replaced by a titanium example of the same stem. I installed original WTB grips. That is about it

Very cool!

What is the bolt for on the front of the fork? Also, did this bike used to be red?

Mikey, I think they are for a rack, but I am not sure.

On your 2nd question: yes, it used to be red. Well spotted The original owner had fenders, racks and a butterfly bar fitted. He used it as commuter. Very luxurious commuter

Yes, so nice. I remember this bike from your post over on retrobike; you had a brooks saddle on it, right? (or some kind of older leather saddle)

Yes, a Swift Ti. For some kind of reason the rail kept making creaking noises on this post, so I switched it for this Rolls Due.
