sorry my bad english..

I enjoy old bikes , images on retrobike , remind me of old days, I ride each day and all weather,,these make me smile.. thank you

I move back to uk 2012 and have few bikes like the images on the forum..

Dust off , some old bikes and would like assist..

I start with rc100 pace I bought like this rc 1990

I seek help that I can source some rubber suspension coils for pace 35 forks.

the crank {bullseye} is locked ., so some new bearings needed to run smooth again like new , could I ask for guidance on these first , please,

greets
Hipy

The bearings are an obsolete item no longer made by any one. Use the search function and you'll find the various options available.

Get some pictures up, but as it's a PACE, you're in good hands on this site.
There are quite a lot of refurbs.
also look for the PACE serial list and get yours in the list if it's still going. You should be able to date it a bit from that as well.

Little update ,this restoration is unfortunately bad news

After moving the fork assembly , revealed a split on the alloy headstock , Speaking to few welders last week have suggested this could be repaired , the finshed repair is not guaranteed,

Unsure now what to do , so I think certainly for the future the frame will get stored,
