Headset installed, fork (except the cone – have to wait for another day, so that I do not disturb the neighbours).
However I’ve made a major f-up.. When fitting the wheel I realised that the frame is for 650c wheels..
The seller mentioned that he used to be a mechanic for TT-rider, and that he was gifted the frame by that rider. However (even though I had heard of 650c being popular with TT bikes back in the day) I never considered to measure the black frame, due to the fact that the blue is 700c.
However when you look at the two frames side by side, the difference in the placement of the brake-bridge is clear.
Life goes on, i can either: 1) sell the frame or 2) source a 650c 1 1/8 fork and wheels – I can use the new fork for blue Rex.
Some part of me still want to build the frame and have a part of old school bike “tech”.
