Went to the storage to pick up the Pinnacle.
I bought this one new in 1990 and drove it hard,..it has some scratches but back in the days i never expected this to become a classic :wink: but i do not regret it because i had some very nice times on this machine,..
I haven't driven this one for a long time.
The Girvin (was the first one in the Netherlands) fork doesn't work anymore, the elastomer is shocking hard,...i will take it out and will put the original spinner fork en MC1 in there, it is only a shame that the fork/stem did not fade and the frame did so there is some color differences ,...

Love the pink fade paint on the Pinnacle, those originals are really climbing in value!

Defiant,

Nice 8)

If you want to bring the original brightness back in the frame's paint, so it matches the combo and fork better, I can recommend using Commandant 4 => http://www.commandant.nl/produkten1.htm

Of course use the special polishing cloth for this purpose. Do it with care. Finish it with Commandant 7 wax.

Oh ...and on the grips: If you bought them on the same place I did, you seriously overpaid :!:
