Well I have been putting this together slowly over the last 6-8 months. Since getting my first RC300 a few years back I knew I wanted to have a spare in for the day the inevitable happens.

The wheels are on loan from the first RC300.

The RD was purchased on the cheap as a bag of parts needing reassembling and some parts recreating.

Still a few bits left to do, the rear hose needs threading through the frame (new hose kit arrived yesterday) and ideally i'd like a lighter weight isis BB than the current one sat in there.

One of the German sites has SKF 600 road BBs in Isis for bout £35.
An utter, utter bargain for supreme quality!

Looks nice but... fork looks too long for the frame? Also - you need a black or silver stem :-)

Seriously nice bike, classy

Maybe one day I'll get a frame to match my Pace forks.
What size is this frame please? Looks like a good size.

Enjoy!!
