This fork has 30mm trail. That was the lowest trail of the forks offered for this model. The French porteurs used a combination of large front racks and low trail to carry stacks of newspapers around Paris in the 40s and 50s.
The fork has four sets of braze-ons: one on top of the fork crown, one midway up the fork, and two at the dropout. Plus, there is a fender braze-on underneath the fork crown. This makes mounting racks, lights, and fenders extremely easy, and totally unlike other "modern" bikes.
The InoLED headlight has a strange beam "footprint" that it casts on the ground directly in front of it. I found this to be distracting when the light was mounted at the fork crown, but don't notice it at all where the light is mounted now.
I should probably explain the title of this gallery. The Porteur is officially a Kogswell P/R, which stands for Porteur/Randonneur. The idea at design time was that the bike could be configured as either a Porteur or a Randonneur, since the committee that designed it, the KOG mailing list, wanted both. Prêt à Porter is the French for "ready to wear", which I think is an apt description of Kogswell Cycles: they're mass-produced bikes that have design elements of custom bikes. Porter and Porteur are homophones in French, so the pun.
