So, I've bought this 1998 S-Works M2 frame originally to stick some spare M95# XTR stuff on.

However I've also got a pair of Rock Shox Judy FSXs I could stick on it, some red and silver Avid canti brakes and levers , some Odyssey triple traps, an umma gumma seat, Hugi wheels and M900 XTR etc.

Don't know what to do... :? Obviously this won't be an exact replica of the bike in question, (the frame is too modern for a start).

Answers please - period '98 build or rough replica?

Thanks :D

I seen one of these recently with Judy SL's and M95* and it looked great! Would look even better with FSX's.

Would you be happy knowing that everything except the frame, the main part, would be an exact replica?
Perhaps build it up as a rep and keep a hunt on for the right frame?

Always wanted a JMC rep! Had an 18' s works but was just to big to be a proper job. Very interested how this progresses!
