    Beatiful so far!

    I would love to get a seat like the one on your dream bike, I think it is the same seat the wrench monkeys bike has. Any hints on where to get or how are you going to make that seat?

    I have a Eurosport fork lying around which I could measure for you. Have to put it back together first ofcourse :P which I might be able to do tomorrow.

    You probably already know this by the way; but Eurosport forks won't fit the C triples; fork diameter is 37mm.
