If you don't mind something modern I did spot this on ebay...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shimano-Saint ... 232dbb42f2

I'm suspicious of the low price though (doesn't come with brakes unfortunately)...

You may be better sourcing parts individually though and if you want retro parts I'd personally not look at anything below Deore LX (prefer XT myself)

Something that was available at the time the bike was new, that's also black/silver to match the frame. I think you could order them with Shimano XT [Which is more silver], the groupset below that was Shimano Deore LX, which is more black. Both a very good, as the previous chap said, although I can't feel the quality difference between them.

How's the build going? I've got the pedals sorted for mine now, which means I've pretty much got everything I need to start the build, so I think I'll have a crack at it in a week or two.

Makes a real difference, and the paint on the lowers looks pretty good condition so they overall will really shine :D
