I present to you all my newly acquired RM Thunderbolt. 8)

Thanks goes out to bagpipes for passing this on to me, along with the rest of his RM collection and stash of parts & swag! :shock:

Now I need to source a proper fork. The one I have is damaged, bent beyond repair. :(

JC Mother of lord... that is a very very nice frame. I can't stop looking at it. Is it custom build? I think the fender eyelets aren't standard (but what is?) on such? Is the frame geometry standard? Or tailor fit to the lucky first owner?
