ok a few more pics just to keep the thread up to date.

The cranks have been stripped rewelded properly, cleaned and ready for rechroming.( I know is not original but I preferred the chromed look and I wasn't keen on the red powder coated parts when new.)

The magura mounts were badly fettled by me when I was 18 on a weight saving mission, so i have cleaned them up on the cnc and they are about to be stripped and black powder coated. also cnc'd the bar clamp of the brake lever to bring it back to original spec.

The cable mount mods are back in a variety of colours along with all of the old blue anodised stuff.

Got to say very impressed with the quality of the anodising. If you live in the dorchester area and need some quality stripping and reanodising, Give Noel a ring at Dorset Aluminium Products 01305 265235 He will sort you out at a very reasonable cost. Failing that drop me a pm as I'm always sending stuff off there (black and silver mainly)

Just to keep things going in the right direction I have some wheel choices to make regarding the final build

Might need some advice from the forum here:
the choices are
A) Spin front and rear
B) Disk Drive Pro (Rear) and Spinergy (Front)
C) Original Pace hubs(somewhere in shed) F&R laced up to some Mavic 231's (yet to aquire)

A and B are pictured below but not on the pace so you will have to use your imagination for this and option C

Cheers in advance for your help.

:shock:
If you put Spins, Spinergys or any other tat on it I will use the power of the internet to hunt you down and burn them... :roll:

Only joking!

...actually on second thought; no, I mean it. While I'm at it, get that tat off that poor Attitude as well. Option C - you know it makes sense.

What are you doing with the maguras? Just milling them or something else? Nice work on the cable guides.

My opinion and mine only is that putting spins or a Disk Drive on a Pace would be a heinous crime....Mavic 231's would be much more 'correct' :wink:

Looks like you have the skills to match Andyl so this could turn out to be a BOTM/Top Drawer resto :)

Disk drive on a Pace isnt too bad.

Quite the norm back in the day.
