Hi there. Just found this forum, it's fab. My clockwork is a 10th anniversary edition. The back end needs a respray as it's seen better days, and some new decals are called for. But that aside, it's just a joy to ride. What are my chances of re-spraying the back end with flourescent plastikote, or am I wasting my time. It's got the Stx rc groupset, and RST 381 forks, anyone know if these are original?. Also would the forks look better in white, to compliment the frame? and lastly does anyone know where I can get some amber wall tyres. I can only seem to find black. I will post ore pics when i've got her looking tip top. Any comments welcome. She cost me £145 on the bay last summer, and i can honestly say i'm well pleased. Thanks for all the info guys. Keep up the good work. Greg, West Sussex
That's a good bike for £145. I think it was c£650 back in 1999 with that fork and STX-RC. I think it would look best with a black fork though - with the word Pace written on it. The RST is the weakest part of the recipe at present.
I think the Gods would wreak terrible vengeance on you if you resprayed the back end with flourescent plastikote - use a craft file, Kurust where necessary and Humbrol modelling paint and they would smile on you. Seriously, it looks from here as though it just needs careful tidying up.
Here is a pic of one with amber-wall tyres. I'm afraid I don't know where you can get any, but you see them from time to time.
