Superb. Not a massive fan of the bars personally, but overall that is a very nice build.

thanks :D im a fan of originallity so i tried to keep it all specialized parts. the majority of the the groupset (and the manual) was taken from my 1999 FSR. i damaged the frame so i swapped it for the stumpjumper frame and changed the forks

Sean - that's a pukka job!!! 8)
If that's an 18", TT should be around 22 1/2 at the most - not massive.
All the parts on there really look the biz and period correct, but you won't need to treat that like an old relic - it'll go like a rocket!
(I like M2s!)
Good work mate! :D

ps -did you buy this from Member10502?

really well actually, but it is a bit of a stretch to the front as the frame is quite long

my old fsr was very pretty to look at, and all original when i got it. the guy i bought it off of had it since '99.
