Frame was Bought off a chap on here & I have had it resprayed in original colour & new decals applied under the lacquer.
Not sure about the stem, I put it on as a temporary measure as I was hoping to have a pace RC45 XC stem in silver available (using a quill adaptor & shim) Grips are intended to be a pair of Brooks leather grips in a tone matching the saddle. Alternatively I was going to swap the saddle for my usual equip of a ti flite in black, then use a pair of clear onza porci-paws. Very much undecided on the final touches.
Between psychlist, Jez and myself I think we have the Roberts MTB range covered
Any comments/ build/ finish advice welcomed.
