Just put some 2003 bombers on the marin and fsa bars and truvativ team stem, that and the stiffer rear spring is a really good setup well chuffed with how it rides now. Not exactly a retro build but very usable.

Just a couple more snaps with the bombers on instead of the sync forks and new bar, stem, grips and brakes.
