As coincidence would have it, in today's post were three connected items - an RM Summit frame, a black Syncros bar and an RM top...! :-)

The Summit has been a long term object of lust, one that I thought would go unrequited, but, just when one is about to give up, this frame hoved into view.

The frame (serial 798) is in need of a complete paint job to do justice to its structural integrity and some shiny reproduction decals.

I have often referred to these pictures on MTBR during my search, but intend to have an RS1 front end, rather than a slavish catalogue build up.

Quite nice. I sure would like to get my hands on one, but can never seem to come across one in my size. :roll:
