It arrived today from sunny California and only cost $147 in postage so that made it palatable to buy it. It's like it's never been used, the Araya RM20s have no brake rub at all. I took off a ripped Advocet gel saddle and replaced with a NOS Vetta, it had no pedals so I added some copy Suntour bear cages. I need to put on a new chain. There are a few scratches but overall it looks great. Yeah you noticed the yellow dust caps 8) .. me, I did that 8)

I discovered that :D

A word of warning, don't ever tell me where you live. I'd pay some thug good money to steal that :lol:

Those Ground Control's look ace, and those Cunningham brakes.....

I was pretty excited about my new project but feel a little deflated after seeing this!

That is fantastic - always fancied a bike with WTB/Cunningham/Suntour rollercams. But have never tried one - for the sake of my ignorance: how does the braking compare with cantilevers?
