Here's my 1996 Wahoo. Took off the mud guards as 2.2 tyres are too large.

I recently picked up this '91 Montare for $60 (about £31).

This pic was taken immediately after I got it home and gave it a good wash. Judging by the amount of crap that came off it, I don't think it had seen soapy water or degreaser for some time. It's currently stripped down and undergoing restoration (and those hideous bar ends are in the bin!).

I'm also restoring a '96 Paragon. I bought this from the original owner, who bought it from Start To Finish bikes in San Rafael. This bike has been up and down Mt Tam. :D

Tyres aside the components are all original, although the fork was seized and the paint was shot in places.

Here's my RS-1...very dark purple with a Lawwill Leader...Linkagetastic :shock: 21 at the last count.
Slowly assembling all the Campag components, but I'll keep the MountainCycles brake...even if it is rubbish.

All the best.

Hey Dan,

Love that RS1. It is one of my alltime favorit bike's .
You are right on the brake, alltough it is a crappy one, you should leav it
on the bike. It does have the looks.

Image

Funny thing is, I had planned to do the same with mine. Build it with the
Campa components and a nice Lawwill leader 2.

I only need to source one of those Leader 2 forks for now.......
So if anyone of you has one up for sale, I'm interested !

This is what mine look's like right now.

First thing will be some fresh new paint

Cheers
Jeroen

Or being lucky and finding a first Generation Hope like mine. They work fine for a such old disc frame :D

haha.....

If it werent complete and me having a Pro-Stop service-box, I'd go for that Hope brake aswell.
I do however have a Hope-brake on the 2nd generation Lawwill-bike
(this one, sorry for being off-topic)

@ Dan: I'll PM you about the forks.

Cheers

@ 24pouser,

That Hope does look good, however the frame seems to be build for the Pro-Stop.
The Hope brake doesn't use the rear cable-stop......

Cheers
Jeroen
