Not a huge fan but certainly looks better in the second set of pictures. I am a huge fan of RC40's very nice fork and could be keen on another set if any one has some.

Haha, thought that would please you. Got to say these are so much better than the Marzocchis on it last week.

I'm guessing you managed to get the headset sorted then?

Yeah I got some spacers and sorted it. Slightly higher than before but in a good way. Nice one for offering them up.

Slight update. New cranks, gear cables (Goodridge) and a shortened brake hose on the front. Much more fun and cheers to mountainloz for his hard work.

Got a few more shots of the beast today. All that is left is some matchmaker style clamps for the shifters/brake levers, hose guides for the forks, new chainstay protector and some new grips. Hopefully that will all happen this week.

hmm I have toyed with buying one of these, but I see it as similar to my KHS. I do think it lacks the style of a proper Pace.

Quick pic down at the beach taken with the phone before.

Changed the stem for a Hope 90mm and had the forks sorted by justbackdated. Very pleased with it now.
