Looks like it can fit a lot larger tyres than mine - marathon winters struggle to fit and catch and rub.
I must have a different fork as I bought mine second hand.
well that Ebay bike could make the basis of a nice tourer if some one lives around Sheffield to go and collect. Just add some mudguard and 1.75" Marathons and a front low rider ( I think it was either Brucey or Colin531 who said could be got from SJS quite cheap ) and you have one very like the original? Maybe a stem might be needed as the ones they came with ( seems to be original on the Ebay bike ) was too short and the steerer cut down too far. I see the guy getting rid of it as he is too tall - well he should have got a long steerer extension from Rose cycles would have done the job ( as I did ) so his loss is your gain
