Awesome work on the Pace!
Have just come across this post as I was looking for photos of an F500 to show my colleague.
I have an F500 F1 as bought direct from Pace many moons ago; it was their team race bike and I bought it off them at the end of the season. I love it. Very similar to yours but with the HEDs and big uns, it also has the chain retainer that loops over and under the front chain ring as described earlier in this post.
It has been hiding in my shed for many months now as the arrival of my little baby girl has robbed all my time! However this forum has prompted me to act. I will get it out over the weekend and give it service. Will post some images as soon as I get it cleaned up.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Not sure how I missed this post!
Glad to be an inspiration, but would love to see some shots of yours. There are not many about you know
would be particularly keen on seeing the chain retainer so I could possibly have one fabricated.
