This arrived nicely packaged yesterday. Yes I have finally bagged a Prestige in a proper size and in my fave colour scheme. It is far from mint with plenty of small marks and a little ding. Most of the damage is to the decals though so I have already ordered a new set from Gil...not fussed about it being mint as it will be ridden. I'm also not fussed about buying any more parts for it as after a good rummage around I think I have everything needed to get it rolling. Its not gonna be 100% period, but nothing nasty and modern on it either. Should be a quick build this one :-)

Looks in good shape, but not sure about "proper size" though, looks a bit big to me :)

Considering how short the steerer tubes are on Clockwork frames, that must be a monster. :D

I was never very keen on the silver & purple colour way back in the day, but it has grown on me over the years. This one looks to be in good shape, it should build up into a nice ride.

Looking forward to seeing things progress.

Nice 8)
Parts to go on it look decent enough too.
I think you should have left some of the foam padding on there as a "portage" pad :D

These earlyish Deore/Araya RM20's should fit the bill along with the mandatory Flite ti 8)
