Thanks so much for the update.

These latest pictures show your hammer god to be clean as a whistle! Nice work.

Question regarding frame's brake bridge -

notice that rear brake caliper arm does not rest parallel to seat stay. wonder if bridge mounted with mounting hole for caliper non-perpendicular to seat stay. is mounting bolt straight? sometimes mounting hole can be noticeably larger in diameter than mounting bolt allowing for some "woggle."

Since you purchased the cycle in Belgium you know that it is a two language and two culture society. The bicycle's threading and writing tell us that the manufacturer falls on the francophone side of the divide - a Walloon.

Most Belgian cycle manufacturers/businesses seem to fall on the Flemische side of the divide.

Au Sujet De Nord Royal -

one o' me favourite marques!

the Garage Indesteege bicycle I posted images of back in post number seven of this thread is a Royal Nord product. it carries a "RN" transfer for Royal Nord on its seat tube. note also the belgian national rampant lion symbol in the transfers. this comes from the national crest and is seen on both Royal Nord and Garage Indesteege transfers. the Garage Indesteege town is Landen which is right next to Hasselt, home of Royal Nord. Red bicycle is child model Royal Nord. Next to last image shows a Royal Nord wearing a Garage Indesteege similar transfer. Final image Belgium Coat Of Arms.
