Retro 1993 PROJECT 100% USA Made In America Mountain Bike RARE

Retro 1993 Answer Manitou FS Full Suspension Mountain Bike MTB 17" Vintage RARE Price is US $1500

Frame is dated April 14, 1993 Production #FS0806 Size - 17

I have for sale my 20 year "100% All USA made components" project. The bike is about 90% there. My goal was to build a non shimano all American bike. The bike was purchasedin 1993 at Cycle Sports in Alameda (Oakland) California. I am the original owner of the bike and it has been hanging on my wall (literally) for the last two decades. It has less than 100 miles on it and the frame is crack free. I rode my Klein Adroit instead. This is an absolutely beautiful piece of CNC machined art, all circa mid 1990's parts.
All parts are NOS completely unused with the exception of the pedals and brakes ( I heisted these from my old Yeti ARC)

All that it needs to finish it up is :

* rear cassette (Sachs or ??)
* chain (Sachs or ??? )
* brake/shift cabling
* front CNC derailleur ( Pauls or Precision Billet)
* 1 1/4" AHeadset

Frame size 18" centre to top, seattube 16" centre to centre, top tube 22.5" centre to centre.

* Frame: 1993 Answer Manitou System FS; aluminium; rear suspension
* Stem: original Answer Manitou CNC stem
* Bars: NUKEPROOF Carbon Fiber handlebar
* Grips: Specialized S-works
* Forks: Answer Manitou 3
* Headset: DiaCompe AHeadset 1 1/4" (Non USA made part )
* Seatpost: 31.6mm Answer/Ringle Original

* Brakes: Machine Tech Zeroflex Cantilever Brakes
* Levers: Paul Love Lever Compact Silver
* Crankset: Cannondale Coda/Magic Motorcycle MTB Crankset &BB - 175mm 44-32-22
( prod # 6087 **)

* Pedals: Speedplay stainless steel pedals X/2
* Shifters :8 speed SRAM Grip Shift
* Precision Billet Proshift rear derailleur

The sale also includes a set of NOS TIOGA FACTORY XC 26x1.85 tires and an extra matching DKG brake
booster for the rear.

More pics available upon request.

** The potentially defective crankarms have date codes between 7182 and 8214 (manufacturing dates from the 182nd day of 1997 through the 214th day of 1998). The date codes are stamped on the inside of each crankarm. Earlier or later date codes are fine.

The prettiest FS bike ever made IMO. Wish it was a larger frame, then I would raid the piggy bank.
