frame looks in decent condition and comes with RC36's (I think)

got later v-brakes and shifters but mechs are original.

I think the entire UK site should own a clockwork(c16r)P7 or Prestige. in their collection, even if just the frame.

I’ve just bought this. Should I replace the forks with rigids and get it resprayed/powder coated?

Cor, that went cheap! I you plan to re-paint I might have a frame to swap as it would be a shame to lose the original finish. My frame is not orange/white so not such a shame to change.

I’ll take a look at it when I collect it. Don’t suppose you have any original bars and stem for sale?

If the forks are in good nick, they'll be worth what you paid for the bike.

I'd get some rigid forks to go on it - I think someone here is selling some prestige forks with 1" steerers.

I'd not be re-painting that unless its in truly shocking condition.

EDIT: this is the link for prestige forks: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=393851

If that paint is half as good as it looks in the pics then you should face a firing squad if you repaint it!

Great score :)
