That one is a 94. The P-bone fork isnt original though, should be a pepperoni

Perfect thanks so 1994 that will help with fitting the parts
and correct it does have originally pepperoni forks which I still have. Just can not decide if to keep the P Bones or put the pepperoni forks bak on the frame ?? :roll:

But I think the P Bones look a hell of a lot nicer - maybe get them sprayed up to match the frame? 8)
