Can I take credit for the Race Face headset? :lol: ...I recall selling it to you a few years back I think :D

Should be a lovely build :)

I wouldn't as Rocky had left them behind as soon as ahead came out.


That grey stem is a late 90's GT owned model ?

I know a way to straighten the forks for you LOL.

Gorgeous frame though, best RM I've seen.

Beautiful frame, Frank. Glad it's going to see some life now. I agree that the pewter RF cranks, RF headset and RF bb are no-brainers. For my taste, I think I'd go black or ti for the stem/bar/seatpost. Assuming you have the right sizes and what-not.

No update on the Thunderbolt, but wanted to share a tidbit on the sign in the background. Just recalled one was listed on Vancouver craiglist some time last year in Vancouver. So I decided to dig through RBUK and see if I could find that thread I had posted about it.

Yee-Ouch! I recall it being pricey, but nothing close to the amount of $750! And before anyone asks, no this is not one in the same that I own now, I asked the prev owner if he was the buyer of that one.
