That was a bit of a mid build change of plan. I'd wanted Pace forks from the start, but couldn't find any decent ones, then typically, after the Dukes cames back from being painted, the Paces turned up on here.

Looks like it may actually turn a wheel under "pedal power" tonight.

Well, it actually rides, & really reather well in fact.

Weighs in at a touch over 23Lb & after 11 years riding a 32Lb B-17 FRS the acceleration is a revelation. The dual control brave/gear levers work really nicely too and the brakes are a cinch to setup & bleed.

Just need to pop on some frame rub pads & that's about it now.
