Old (press-in) sealed bearings are included for reference but need replacing - old circlips included also. The handlebar has the double quil/expander as pictured. Bars are designed for a brazed on steerer with the clamping bolt, these where probably added to the frameset at some point in time - same (very old paint color with matching patina). The paint has typical marks and scrapes from years of use and some spidering as pictured. Rear brake cable stop has been repaired at some time and is still unpainted - see last picture #12.
