Hopefully not going to offend anyone here...but this is the worst looking Pace I've ever seen...Just looks all wrong...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0125219478

And with the length of those cables it surely can't have been built by a professional mechanic?!?

Needs saving by someone...

(Again - if it belongs to anyone here - apologies :D )

Isn't there something odd about people that own a bike like that but don't know what it is? The RC100 and 200 were (are) iconic bikes, you don't buy one because you want a shopper, you buy one because you know what it is and what its for.... I don't trust sellers of such stuff when they cant' even pin down the right model.

Caveat emptor my friends.

When I see things like this I wonder if people are selling stuff that they haven't owned for long, or are selling on behalf of someone else (being an ebay proxy is quite an easy way to make pocket money)
