Here's my RC300 owned from new. I had a few RC200's beforehand and wanted one when they came out.

Sadly I hardly ever rode it, lost interest, stripped it down, it has been in the loft for years.
Fast forward to six months ago I decided to build it up again as it used to be, bought most of the parts here. Hardest part to find was the correct Hope brake line long enough for the rear C2. I had Hope minis (I think) on it originally but the C2's and Pro levers I had on a previous RC200 were loads better.

It's not finished yet, need disc rotrs, cassette, chain and gear cables. Not sure about the pewter Pace chainrings, thinking that a set of black ones would look better.
Also thinking of updating the XTR mechs to newer type ones in black.

Decals? the frame and fork lost them the day I bought it. I figured that the frame and forks spoke for themselves.

Nice, it is clean looking but I think the seat tube would look better with the decals on, looks too clean without them 8)

Nice, I'm liking that alot, got me thinking twice about wheter to get new decals for my RC200 or not.
Black/silver works well together, add in a bit of carbon and it's a winning combination!

One thing though... looks to be a lot of seatpost sticking out of the frame? is there enough post left in the seat tube? you don't want any accidents with the frame :wink:

It's a 400mm seatpost and bang on the limit in the frame manual. I think the photo makes it look longer than it is as well :D

I'm half tempted to sell it as I can't really envisage me using it all that much :cry:
