Finally sourced a pepperoni fork, in blue even. It's not quite the right shade but to me it just adds some character. Now the only original piece missing is the "285" stem which seems to be nearing hen's teeth status. I think this will be the bikes final configuration for a while.

If it was my bike I would put on a shorter stem so I could get the saddle further back on the rails. It looks like you leaning quite a bit forward just now and the the bike is too long with that stem.

At least the 22" model had a larger stem (~145 mm). The C´dale folks even fitted a 180 mm crank and XL pedal cages with this bike. :wink:
