word of advice from a very depressed prestige owner.
make sure you get some frame saver in the tubes, being as prestige tubing is really thin it doesnt take rust long to eat through them.

according to the man dave yates he sees quite a few prestige' with the exact same problem.

wish id known about the stuff would of saved me alot of heartache.
but things should be getting brighter by next week.
