just got these today, hopefully next week they will have finished the frame.
still on the lookout for cable guides, no replies adrian mole.
still on the lookout for some original magura mounts, no replies from jj wood.
does anyone know what chain would be best to use. ?
getting very close to completion.
i would only recommend restoring an rc100 if you have very deep pockets, thank goodness for overtime.

ok due to difficulty in getting cable guides, i have finally decided to use these, i know it is a compromise, i would have loved some originals, or reproductions, but needs must.

ever since i bought this bike iv'e been aching to ride it, but it just had to be right to ride, i think all the time, money, effort will have been well worth it.
just wish those elusive magura mounts would appear from some where, looks like i'll have to adapt the brakes to fit the new mounts i got.
on a positive note, argos told me all being well the frame will be done next week, so i may have this bike done for christmas.
happy days. :D

You don't need to adapt the brakes to work with the modern mounts. The only difference between the old mounts and the new ones are the large olives that allow the brake to be moved in 3 dimensions. That fits directly on the piston body and sits in the mount.

If I was you I would use them over the original as they are far superior-just spray them black and no one will ever know. Thats what I've done.
