You guys have been dragging our Canuck steel across the pond for too long. I am taking one back.

I present my 1991 Dave Yates Diabolo ... in one week.

I'm afraid I think that has been held up by UK Customs.

At my house...

I got my mitts on a Pace RC30 Fork in the UK and had it shipped on over.

I had it re-chromed along with a prestige tioga and bar (one more tioga bit to come). Some other bits in the pic ... big job for my chrome guy. He only managed to loosed 2 parts (all the key ones for my '95 Mantis :cry: )

Anyway ... fork, stem, and bar are super pretty.

Following this one... lovely Yates and like the look of the build, a bit different with the Campag, Tioga and chrome.

Thanks guys ... It’s a bit different, maybe too much as you’ll see. I’m just cabling it up now so I’ll reserve judgement until I can take it all in.

Anyway .... A “base” of white ... if you couldn’t tell from the cranks.
