judy sl,
royce titanium bottom bracket
flite slr saddle
x lite riser bars
xtr m900 front and rear mech

The sad thing about it is that i have no photos of the old girl.She was getting abit harsh on by backside though .I was riding the P7 a lot more,bit more forgiving on the nether regions as I am not getting any youger.This does give me an excuse to get a ti frame ,which would see me out.

Yes it was the hardtail.I dont suppose they are worth anything now but when I bought the frame new at the end of93 it cost in excess of 1000£.I remember that the total orignal total build was just shy of 2500.The Judy sl were 600£ back then.You get a lot more for your money these days.
