Hi! Welcome to the site; moved your thread over to the "Readers Rides 1998 and up, forum, as all build threads go in their forum, separated by 1998 and newer or 1997 and older.

You'll get more action here 8)

Looks pretty cool that. In great condition given its age.

The rear shock was way ahead of it's time. Does the electronics still work?

That is very nice indeed..much more fun building them yourself,as long as you are NEVER stupid enough to add up the cost of all the bits, when i am asked the "how much " question I always answer ..not that much :)
considering how much pleasure it gives me it's an honest answer.
Hope you get the parts you need soon and get it very dirty indeed...truly lovely bike.
