Was the Pace rc35 around in 94?
Yes you're looking a monobox crossover time 35 MXC's and MXCD's (and so a relatively decent amount of travel). Justbackdated (tim) is the god of pace.
I'd go for XC Pro Micro Drive - everything (and you could get "away" with champagne!) - if you can get a complete NOS groupset bit-by-bit you'll have scoured the earth.
Either XC Pedersen SE canti's or magura's as above.
Coloured grips, anno brake and chain bolts in purple.
