This is how my Pace RC-200 F5 looked on purchasing back in Feb, not much needed doing hence This is Not a Build Thread
As it was in overall immaculate condition and been recently built up from mainly new parts all I've really done is remove all the stickers which covered tiny marks and patina and re-polished the frame. Replaced a few bits like the worn middle chain ring, saddle with a Selle Flite 1990, bottle cage and shortened the chain.
Replaced the purple Answer ATAC with a black near NOS ControlTech stem. Almost complete just waiting for some NOS QR skewers to arrive then just a few little tweeks to the gearing and maybe add some decals.

They are great bike....treat yourself!

No both wheels are 26, I think its an optical illusion due to wide angle lens of phone camera and the path rises left to right.

Looks much nicer with black stem, good work! But I think the RC30's look terrible and you should sell them to me :-)

Thanks. I am on the hunt for a set, but the bouncy ones will do for now.
