I really love the RS1…
Is Gil printing you neon pink decals for the RS1 ?


Yep! Already got them! He had them in his file!

Very nice colour, are you using decals with the darker blue stripes behind it?

Nope, just had the decals made as they were on the original!

Thanks Gil! :wink:

I think I didn't understand you! The darker blue stripes are the contours of Mt Tam (I think). And yes, those are the ones I will use!

Will take a pic of the decals also this weekend. And from my NOS cantilevers, perfect polished cranks, NOS XT seatpost clamp and everything else I forgot! :wink:

Here are some more pics of the parts I'm going to use. Got another Fisher saddle: the original Trail Tail! And some new cranks and NOS brakes! :P

New polished XT M730 cranks

The steering unit :wink:

RockShox RS-1 newly build! Need to do some work on the looks!

The first thing I have to do now is apply the decals on the frame and spray it with a clear lacker. After that I can start rebuilding it! Cannot wait! :P

Bart, this is looking nice - did you fit the RS1 seal kit yet?

What are you doing for wheels? Did your Araya find give you the rm400s that you need? :D

p.s. after much deliberating I have decided to put stickers over laquer on a couple of my builds - stickers are cheap compared to a re-spray & most bikes were sold like that anyway :wink:

Nice work! That RS-1 is a great looking fork already, even better with some new decals on it. Must be a good feeling knowing that you can almost start building your bike!

To be honest! I bought another RS-1! This one was in very good working condition. Just needed to put some air in it and it worked! I think I am gone respray it and then put the decals on!
Now I have the sealkit for future problems! :wink: Or to get the other RS-1 in working condition again! Need to find a new project! :P

I normally just put the decals over the laquer, but in this case I want them under a clear coat. Just want it perfect this time. And to be honest (again), I don't think this one is going to be used very often on the dirt tracks!
