My lovingly nostalgically prepared and built '94 Prestige, lots and lots of period British bits on it too, though I didn't get OCD about it at all. Its based one the ('91) Prestige I had in '92/93, as if I had not sold it and moved to BMX/party/college/motorbike in 1993! :D
Patient labour of love over 3/4 years collating. :)

Can anyone think if any British manufacturers had a go at developing a suspension platform?


I remember the Bigfoot smokestone that had a bolt-on parallellogram elastomer based unit, I assumed it was made by them, but may be wrong?




I think the rear end was made by Softail innovations possibly in the west country? I have the same model but without the sus,

I'm not much of a Pace fan, but that's very nice indeed.

A patriotic coloured frame from one of the countries top dogs.

This was to be my most blingy build, A top British frame, dripping in a selection of prime British components, and all finished off with a touch of patriotism.

Sadly on its first ride, I stacked it big style, scraped some of the blingy anno (not visible in the photo) And lost two teeth in direct exchange for a dozen or so stitches in the face. Still, it manages to look nice, shame I didnt come out of it so pretty!

Frame: Chas Roberts D.O.G.S.B.O.L.X
Fork: Custom sprayed Pace RC30
Stem: Roberts
Seatpost: Syncros (Sprayed by Roberts)
Cranks: Middleburn
Hubs: Middleburn
BB: Royce
Bars: Pace
Shifters: Precision billet mounted XTR pods
Levers: Tech lite
Brakes: Critical Racing
Saddle: Flite ti

(sadly complete with crash damage, and blood stained handle bar grip!)

Way more interesting a colour for a DB than the run of the mill black/white... if you ask me.
