I think I saw the one you mention. Fella in a wheelchair sadly parting with it?


Yeah, that's the one. Almost wanted to buy it so I could look after it for him but he wanted far too much.

I'd pegged the Prestige as a bit high end. But my newly acquired Clocky fits the bill if I can get it serviced & the missing bits fitted (from the parts box). Another 'survivor' that will be conserved rather than restored. Mrs also getting me a C-16R for my birthday in original condition except the bars, which I have ready. Not collecting until the 29th so a bit tight for that one. :wink:

All stripped down. Just got to note decal positions before stripping off the old ones & sending it to the powder-coaters. They're fully booked until end of march so plenty time for me to assess what I'm keeping or replacing & getting parts cleaned up ready to fit. The Project 2 forks will be replaced by 1st gen Pace RC30's. Still thinking on the rest.

The Magura's - not decided about them. May be up for sale or trade. The bar/stems staying put!

Interesting paint on the fork steerer. Are they original? Look a bit beefier in the pics that the standard ones.
