Here you go

You will need the Pentax Bellows M and a machined adaptor.
A possible problem might be the position of the N2 plane of your Rodenstock 100mm
The Bellows M fully collapsed takes about 65 mm of the register, so you will have about 35mm for an adaptor so that the distance between the K01 sensor plane and your lens N2 can be 100mm .
In my case the lens is a Rodenstock 90mm enlarger lens, and and I machined a M39 whitworth internal thread adaptor ( Leica mount) to fit inside the K mount on the end of the bellows,
