I'm really impressed and I wish i had the time / patience / available elbow grease to be able to put together a build like that.

I'm sure it will be stunning when it's done.

Did you not get a 1 piece stem / steerer & rigids with that bke? (my personal fave on an RC100).

Andy,
I have just picked up a pace RC100, would you mind if i tapped your knowledge regarding restoration of such beasties at some point?

Theres quite a lot to do, but i've yet to work out where i need to spend my time.

So if you dont mind, i'll be in touch!
