Hi all,

I picked these up with a future rebuild bike a few weeks ago mainly as it was a fare deal and components on the bike were top spec, I decided to strip the bike down and give the forks a service and decided to get some new decals as they weren't the best but I couldn't find a match on the pace site and not much info on the web,
Long story short it turns out they are Pace rc36 pro class limited forks and appear to be pretty rare, I can't find a great deal of info so if any of you wise people could help that would be much appreciated??

Pic was taken at the time when picking the bike up they look very tidy indeed now just the pic has the original decals which I now have to try and find a new set of"(
Cheers")

I have a pair, the only difference from the previous years model is that the crown has the machines radial grooves below the crown race. Doubt you'll find and decals as they didn't make many pairs. I peeled mine off as I thought they looked better without decals anyway.

Your stanchions look quite worn.

Yes they do look pretty cool without the decals and I too thought the stanchions were worn but had the fork serviced as they were filthy when I got them and it turns out its just the gold anodising, they are smooth and true.
