Yeay!

Pace RC200 F1 here...see bike of the month!

Not quite sure how many they made in the end, guess production couldn't have been that many though!

Either way, I think RetroKing has the majority in his collection!!! ;)

Now stop it boys. If he wants to incur the wrath of a thousand demons by ignoring the rules of Yorkshire square that's between him and his god! :wink:

I think it's a good thing anyway. Imagine if they were all silver and black with Pace forks. Klein's can get a bit like that, seen one, seen 'em all!(runs behind sofa and hides :lol: )

Surely you mean Fat Chances...? ;)

Thought Steve's is the first ever Pace I've seen without Pace forks...

LOL.. The bike did come fitted with a pair of Pace RC-36 Proclass forks. I actually did 'incur the wrath of a thousand demons' ..but in the form of demon Pace forks. Within a few hours of riding the bike from new the top of the fork stantions below where the crown clamps down had started to deform. These were replaced under warrenty. The second pair lasted two weeks before there were signs of fatigue in the Ti nitride coating. The third set deformed after a long day ride in Chamonix and I was not going to be stopped riding the following day of my holiday so I brought the Manitou's so I could carry on riding. They have been on since and hastle free. I'm looing to replace the forks with a later version of the Yorkshire breed to keep the bike more in keeping. The Pro-class are stashed in the naughty corner with new stantions but I dare fit them, plus i've lost the wierd hope half caliper, collar and hope flange to adapt the forks to run discs.
