Found a few more bits for the build 8)

Managed to get some NOS gold rings from a fellow member,so just need a gold middle ring now(if anyone has one)

Image

Got the all important forks and stem/steerer too

Image

Now im not going for the grey/yellow look so these went into work with me and got bead blasted,i also polished the crown and replaced with black alloy bolts

Image

Then they were powder coated satin black,new decals,still waiting on new black alloy bolt for stem

Image

So now have the set for the frame :D

Image
Image

Ive noticed that theres quite a bit of height difference in the two forks from crown to dropout,must make a big difference in the geometry of the bike :?

Image

Having my wheels built next few weeks so the bikes slowly getting there.

On mine once you add my (considerable) weight the forks compress quite a bit :D

my RC100 came with a 1 " ahead type unit. The Pace stem assembly seems to operate like an inverse ahead assembly and the setup seemed pretty smooth.
