    Default Unmarked EK1 original or not?

    Hello! I wonder if any kind soul can help me and identify if this EK1 is original and if it is what maker it is. My first guess was a Souval but I have not found any EK1´s with that kind of needle construction that he has done.
    I would be very grateful for help.
    thank you!

    It looks like a Souval to me, maybe with a replacement pin

    Thanks Stickgrenade for your answer! Yes maybe that is so. IMO the details is to good to be a repro ...But I´m not sure at all. Maybe there is anyone who is expert on EK1´s that are willing to help me out here That would be very kind. Thanks.

    I'm no expert but it looks like a SOUVAL to me too.
    The frames produced by this factory left an unusual mark on the joints
    corner of the rim.
    Look at the picture below to compare.
