Hello folks. After it's many years of inactivity I decided I was going to strip and rebuild my much loved R.S.P 250. The judy XC's were pretty goosed so to keep things simple I went rigid and indeed single speed. I Sprayed it white using plastikote which gave a reasonable finish then applied some letraset (dry rub transfers) then lacquered over. I filed the brake and cable mounts away but left the rear brake hose guides thinking they would serve a purpose but only one of them is really any use as they placed the lower one much to close to the caliper for it to be possible to have the hose run through it. It's been bashed about a bit since ill probably have it powder coated and apply some custom copper coloured transfers at a later date. Cheers for looking. Joe.
