I'm going to try to upload my project pics if I can. So the story behind this bike is that it was bought originally from the Derby area. The original owner unfortunately became very ill so he gave it to his best mate. There was a sentimental attachment to it which is why it sat for 18 years in a garage. I purchased it via ebay back in July. It's in mid-strip here:

The cranks and stem went off for powdercoating. The did a great job for 20 quid, shout out to Redditch powdercoaters.

The frame came bare alloy which I've decided to keep as most are painted, I'd imagine this was painted at some point.

The cable guides were missing so i 3D printed a set, sanded them and sprayed them black. I have since acquired another set off a deceased crackenfail sm800 so i might use those.

Agreed on the rc30s but I'd imagine the backwards magura mount fork legs are rarer than.

The rc35s elastomers had dissolved so a new elastomer kit was ordered, hard as I'm not the smallest bloke.

looking good.

If you have the cannondale cable guides too, i would 3d print those as well.

If you go on the Cannondale site and see what we are having to pay for them, and then wait for them to arrive, i would think you could have a good sideline there. The demand it there im sure.
