Great to see your photos of how your RC100 has changed over it's life... and great to hear you still own it. What are your plans for it? - If you're going for an original spec, tracking down some of those original parts such as the RC100 specific bulleyes and bottom bracket, the early '531' RC30 legs with Magura mounts, and the one piece stem could be difficult.....
Unless you've still got all the parts though?

Been going back through the archive an found this post from 2009 - Was seriously tempted when I saw it.....

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=67655

In the end, I waited out and bought this the following year......

There's a few fellow RC100 owners on the forum - there's plenty of resource and info here whatever route you decide to go down with your build!

Keep the pictures coming!!

Cheers

i have all the RC100 specific parts safely stored , i will use modern components as much as possible , i like bikes that have been restored to standard however thats not really the route for me more like a hot rod version of a pace if you know what i mean .
