A purist would say no - don't do it.

It's at least 5 years too old for the frame. Putting slightly newer parts on an older frame would be "as used at the time". But this is the opposite - like putting a Rock Shox Mag 20 on a frame from the late 90s. You wouldn't do it.

If you really do want to go down this path, you really need to make the bike look the part and change the C-record parts for Nuovo or Super Record. And to be honest, the paintwork is all wrong.

But it's your bike and I'm just presenting the alternative point of view.
