Possibly,maybe going to not bring a full boing as i have my recently aquired Royce union 8TD to try out.
This is not a high end marque, rather the bike is the higher end of a low end marque, a brand similar to our Falcon or Emmelle brands. Unusual design in oversized alloy from about 1997-98.
It will be semi-boing as I have just bought some NOS RST 461 forks with a 1" unthreaded steerer for £20 posted, a right bargain ! The forks have got many good write ups from back in the late 90's.
Will equip the bike with 21 speed, deore and lower mix and hopefully some better tyres than the cheapos I have currently.
Knowing my luck the whole thing will snap at the first bump but it looks pretty beefy.
Looking forward to it !
Note to kaiser, if I can build up a complete bike in less than three weeks then surely he can show up on a genuine retro bike too
