A custom 1997 RC36 Pro Class for the new century.

Who noticed the 'radiator' crown and the 'Raceware' Europe [IE not Britain] sales decals? :wink:


Approx 60-65mm travel, twin coil sprung and oil[60ml of 5wt] damped. Grease it through the nipples and pop the legs off and clean the seals often to retain the Ti-Ni gold as long as possible.

One from the FEPD workshop methinks :D

I noticed the radiator style crown,but where were they decaled up for :?:

They seem to have a bit more travel then 65mm,as they are running at 20mm sag and still have plenty left :?

I greased them up yesterday and went for a ride and they work much better than many forks I have owned including some modern ones :shock:

The amount that I use this bike the gold should be there for a very long time indeed :oops:

Yep-you might be right about the travel-I have never checked it and can't remember what was claimed bitd-although Pace were always a bit 'generous' on their travel claims :wink:
