I did wonder what headset/stem/steerer combo had allowed the flexstem, as it kind of looks like the original headset ... anyway, the rear wheel isn't original, but you've got the brakes, bars, forks, Bullseyes, saddle, front mech etc...

Home cobbled one piece flexstem/steerer. Must have been the easiest option after the original broke as it was already yellow?
It's been back to the factory for repairs at some point as it has the RC200 seatpost clamp.

Would guess the seat mast cracked and was cut off and a factory fit clamp added, if he ran it with that much seat post I'm not surprised it cracked...
