Really sharp! That's the first Sachs I've seen with any kind of headtube extension.

No but similar size; built for "Sam I Am" then owned by JR59 before making its way to me a few years ago. I sent it to Tom Kellogg about a year ago for refinish/repaint.

That looks great.

i must say, that WI crank really ties that classic bike together perfectly, i think that was 100% a better choice than the shimano crank in this situation.

well done all around!

Thanks. I had the 9100 crank on this bike before the repaint and always felt it was too big and industrial looking for this frame. Picking the crankset was definitely the component I struggled with the most.
