But you should definitely go for a Robs stem-fork combo but not in black color, try to strip down paint and try polished or chrome finish.. this would be perfect to mach frame and Dura-Ace!

Very, very unique. Noted the weight. Maybe it's a wooden weenie?

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
But before I do that, I want to know for sure that a different shape fork will do the trick. Anyone here how does photoshop?
Luckely the rear does look nice IMHO.
The frame just oozes artesanic perfection.
regarding the forks: why can't Renovo make you a nice fork to match?
get as wide a blade fork as possible (in steel or carbon, presumably) and get it custom painted with a wood finish to closely match. maybe an alpha q cs10--those seem to have fat blades.
I will be taking the bike out on its maiden voyage this afternoon, so I will be posting a review of the bike somewhere in the next couple of days.

In the end I went for an Acorn Roll Bag. This American based company makes lovely bags and this one in no exception. It features waxed fabric, leather mounting straps and zippered pockets. It functions and looks great.
Sorry for the crappy pics. I hope to upload some better pics soon.
