Hi

I bought this bike new from BLAZING SADDLES in Streethouse nr Pontefract (no connection with BLAZING SADDLES of today) can't remember when but it was a long time ago, frame No RC042. After the BB bearings collapsed the bike was stripped to be refurbished but it just sat in a box for over 10yrs. About a year ago I bumped into old ned at a cross race & he told me about retrobike & I decided to rebuild it just in time for the BIG DIRTY WEEKENDER.

Daz.

The RC-100 was and still is my dream bike. Great to see another one in such good condition. Fantastic.
