My Scarlet Witch

I bought this frame from member Innocenti in the UK. It was NOS, and I had posted in the "Want To Buy" forum I was looking for an old school Panda cruiser. Next thing I know, Tim says he had this beauty and was willing to part with it. Score!

The forks were an enigma at first, but determined to be Bassett prototypes originally made for Robinson. Here's the discussion:
