Is it just a distortion from the close-up photo, or is the head angle very steep with that fork? It'll be interesting to know how you find the steering. Although judging from the age of the frame (95ish?), it'd be surprising if he built it for a longer fork than that, as they were all much the same travel back then.
The one thing I would change is the stem. I'm sure the bike would have been designed for something lower and longer. And when you've got a head tube that long, mightn't you find a riser stem is too much of a good thing?
agree - head tube does mess things up with fork choice - will have to see how it feels (still not had chance to ride it yet
), have some back up RC30's if necessary.
Agree about stem too, got a very short one coming in with no rise, but may even try negative rise. Having a short zero rise stem is way off my normal radar so am experimenting!!
