Was there any frame repair work required on this one?


Pulling up a chair too, I'd reckon the repair/paint loss would have been the seat tube top at least. Looks much shorter than standard. BITD using a shimmed seatpost would forfeit the warranty.
Great looking bike heading the right way 8)

Looks like a standard Pace factory repair, cut off old seat tower and graft on RC200 one, probably when paint was removed.

Keep it polished, tells a story.

Having refurbished one of these myself I will enjoy following this. They are getting so rare now I would be tempted to have this returned to the grey finish. I personally prefer the RC35's on these. Groupset wise the more common was Suntour XC-Pro although you could get it with Campagnolo. Brakes wise the ones fitted are newer as it would have come with Magura Hydrostop HS 11's

Good Luck

I've gone hs33 on the brakes, the re-reviting of the bottle cage bolt went well as the school I work at has a plane build on the way so lovely kit to borrow! 3D printed guides look OK.

Crankset put back together. Luckily had a Pace top ring and Venhill bottom keeping it in house!
