Thanks. It's still on its way to my place. If it's '92 than I have a nice xtr 900 waiting for it.

So here's mine that I've just (almost) finished. I got the frame already stripped from eBay.
It's a '92 but I've taken a liberty in the decals (thanks Gil!) as I wanted to recreate the '94 that I had back in the day.
The rest is a mix of M900/ M737, Hope hubs and Ti bits.... I hope to get matching rims soon and need to sort an issue with the v-brakes clearing the RC35 crown (any ideas?)

Super nice 8)

RE: the brake issue, can you not just move the brakes to the more "conventional/non-Pace" position in front of the fork?, that's if the band-on brake bosses are seperate, looks like they might be?

Thanks!

I see what you mean re: brakes but I don’t think that would help unless I take off the front brace but I’m pretty sure the forks have RJ have both braces fitted. The clearance is between the pin that holds the spring on the v-brake catching the fork brace... see pic...

Won this one on Ebay this weekend. Anyone knows what year this is from? From what I've found on the net it should be 1991?

Forgive me, I'm Belgian, I only know this brand from the time I saw Caroline Alexander ride one in Houffalize back in the nineties.

Will make a great project, that's for sure.

i was so tempted with that, but i forgot the auction end!

Who loves a P7? Picked up a box of bits and a dented frame recently... Looks like a late ‘94/early ‘95 with STX/RC. Most parts there apart from chain, pedals and headset so will try to build up from what I have, and beg/borrow/buy the rest.

Hi All - I'm new to the forum and have spent a very enjoyable time reading this thread :D

Thought I'd add my Orange Prestiege which i took out for a spin yesterday;

One thing I noticed was a bit of play under braking in the RC36 forks so it's curently being stripped with an attempt to try and work out the cause. I'm not sure if there is a common cause?

cheers
Will
