I think the cracing issue was with the 7005 bikes rts2/3 etc in the latter years.
But as stated above it wouldn't hurt to have a look around!

Believe me this frame has had so much tlc and polishing that I would have noticed the tiniest of cracks :wink:

Marc I will have to check with Sheldon but I think a 118 might be a bit long for my Stx Rc cranks but fingers crossed it isnt and thanks for the offer :)

Dave I know it should have Rockshox but this is very much a parts bin build and to be honest I prefer Marzoochi forks anyway.

I have a 93 rts-1 in botm (pg7) and mines a 73 so am guessing there all the same :wink:


Thanks for the info and I'm off to have a look at your Botm entry :)
