Haha, lovely bike x

Iirc jez bought James's team bike, I couldn't afford it at the time. Dont think there was very many to be honest. 4 or 5 that i was aware of. I believe the team bikes stayed with pace between races and then sold on when the f3 was their main ride

Frame now stripped and on its way to Mr Dan Chambers. Dan will be repairing the known crack to the Headtube Weld, Evaluating options to repair the damage on the downtube , examining existing welds and finally having the frame and other components sent to his re-anodiser and chromer

I mentioned at the start of this thread that the success of this restoration is down to some very talented people providing their expertise. Dan has kindly agreed to both show and explain the work he will be undertaking on this thread, which is really appreciated

Ive added some pics to show how back in the day pace milled additional material from their team race bikes to save every gram possible

I have a wanted parts list and please PM if you can help. Two main items I am looking to obtain are a 32H Pace alloy rear hub and a Deore XT 735 short cage rear mech (v.good to excellent condition

I dont get around these parts much these days, but awesome project, and nice to be referenced! Also I think you must be the new owner of the most Pace in a private stable crown. I am down to 3!

I'm pretty sure Longy has that crown I'm afraid, modern paces aside, I think he is definitely in double figures now lol.

Ace work so far David, looking forward to seeing more updates on it dude :-D
