Got this off the bay, been resprayed yellow, actually good quality. has no serial, although been stamped 18, to indicate size. had XTR bb and headset, and the rest XT, with LX chainset, with odd length arms. im in 2 minds about selling it, might strip the paint back to bare metal and polish. but i do have a buyer lined up if i sell (start consulting the oracle letmetalktomark)

needs a bit of work, I would strip it and pollish it. But it's a bit of work, u seem a bit tired of it already so I'd say sell it, and get something else? but it could be a nice bike but it needs some work.

i was only after a few of the bits off this, but never seena chromo rear triangled RTs in the flesh, so might be a long term thing to build up, can never get tired of RTS's although one of my other ones is on the bay

I think I can get hold of one in purple? could be a 93 or so with stx?, the guy who owns it had somekind of brain injury and well can't use it. But I remember that it might have the cr-mo back...

well yours is probarly an 93 RTS-1 or 2 they had True Temper rear swings, and the one I'm thinking of in purple could and is the rts-3

I just took some paint remover on my avalanche, 600wet paper and then autosol. Should have use some clearcoat but a quick buff every 3weeks or so does the trick...
