Custom "Racer X" bike

This is my first build. I wanted something unique and different to all the other converted fixed gear bikes I've seen on the streets. Im saving up for better components but this is what I've got so far.

56cm Reynolds 531 vintage steel frame. The head badge worn out so couldn't make out the maker..I had it powder coated in black.

165mm no-name cranks / Stronglight JP 400 BB

BLB track pedals with Restrap diagonal foot straps

16t Miche cog / 49t Specialites T.A. Alize track chainring / Shimano 1/8" oval plate chain

Nitto b135 Randonneur with Cinelli volee grip tape / no-name quill stem

BLB stealth saddle / LightSKIN seatpost

Shimano 105 front brake caliper / Dia-Compe 139 brake lever

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Spinergy Rev X / Gatorskin continental tire

Thanks! Yeah i noticed the rust on the raw fork. When it gets worse i plan to sand it down then clear coat it... but for now i dont mind. I think it gives it a bit of character lol
