I've had this frame for some time now and this is the first time its EVER had parts fitted. Its had a good shelf life thats for sure.

The frames Reynolds 853 and i think a 97 model? correct me if you wish :?

Nice; but I rather think it's crying out for a red fork rather than a blue one... :wink:

Very nice, it's from 1999 I think. Sadly not retro enough for some, but a stunning frame none the less. The 1999 RSP line up are some of my favourite bikes ever.

If you can do a retromod build using new kit on a retro frame then surely it works the other way round too?

Retro kit on a nearly retro frame?? :wink:

(If you were to swap those DX V's for canti's that is...)

yeah red forks will come in time if a nice enough set surface. i think the sid's deserve to see day light again. i forgot how light they are! Ah maybe its a couple of years fresher than i thought... retro enougb for me anyhow :D

It came with a Manitou SX fork as standard, although a set of red SID's would be amazing. Catalogue link.
