Awesome Ride man!
But would you like to Bring it to a "Near-Original" Component setup?
I have some contacts to get a wheelset that is very close to the original one, a pair of Hope Big UN Red Anodized hubs, front 20mm, rear 9 mm, laced to Gray Coloured Mavic EX 729 Rims. Also I have a contact to get a Manitou X-Vert Carbon, the original fork that Came with it.
Also I have contact for the Original MRP system One of 5 arms that came on that bike, and somewhere I have the pictures of the original bike as was in the catalog.
I remember it was gloss Black front triangle, with Gray or matte silver graphics, and Silver-Gray or Raw alu Rear triangle.
Tyres I guess were Tioga.
If I can and you want I help you in something to bring this jewel to the closest to the original shape, let me know.
Cheers
Max
