The X-Lite seat post is just a stunner - so beautifully engineered and very light.

What a stunner!

There just aren't these kind of bikes built anymore.. it's such a shame those days seem to be gone [except on here of course :wink:]

It's a real classic... look after it well!

That will be Cliff at Royce in New Milton. :wink:
You are right, just like Royce, Cliff is a "Legend" and very very interesting.
I was over from NZ last year and popped in with an old mate to see Cliff and listen to his stories of past and present. I look forward again to doing it this year. :D

Your Roberts is an absolute classic and to have in OG condition that has not been raced hard is rare. Great Never ever sell it, You will regret it. :twisted:
Mine is currently being painted in Croydon and the rebuild will be very similar to yours. Great taste I too had originally a UK flare and used X lite, Pace, Royce of course and some other non Jap brands where UK products were not available.

Don't forget you can still purchase Royce equipment and period is still available. Believe me it's not knocked up now it will probably be OG 90's gear that has always been in stock.

Very nice UK build - needs some RC35 boingers though.
