Started off intending to quickly replace the elastomers on Saturday, then turned into a bit of a resto job. Rebonded the brake fittings, polished the alloy fittings, blasted and painted the magura brace and magura fittings, cleaned up the controls and fitted the two finger levers instead of the four finger levers as they look better.
These are one of the very first RC35s made, supplied as leg upgrade for the RC100, original RC30 black anodised and angle cut fork crown, bonded dropouts. The stem/steerer is a very unusual minus 10 degree Pace one, offered as part of the leg upgrade, the idea being that due to the increased axle/crown height because of the suspension legs it lowers the bar height to the same as it would be with the rigid legs fitted.
All fittings are Venhill/Pace lime green alloy apart from the crown bolts which are the earlier champagne finish Pace bolts.
Handlebars are the later Sub 130 Renthals upgraded in early 90`s.
I have so many more projects the RC100 is at the very bottom of the list at the moment so don`t expect regular updates!
