So I tracked down a 1999 Straight 8 frameset a couple of years ago, but it came with a rear end from the 2000 model, no shock, hardware or brake mount etc. It's been in storage until recently.

A few weeks back I hit the jackpot and bought a complete 2000 straight 8, which happened to be 99 model with a red front triangle, but most importantly it included all of the rare parts on it. So I've pulled it down, polished the rear end up, aswell as all of the other frame components, replaced bearings etc and assembled a complete 1999 frameset.

I have the following parts all ready to go on it.
NOS 1999 Boxxer 151's
Hope Big-Un Front & Rear Hubs (Being rebuilt atm)
Hope DH4/C2 Brakeset
Yeti Chainguide
M952 XTR Shifter & Mech
NOS Kore DH Stem

Still need to track down rims, cranks, bars and a headset for it.

I'm going to mount up the NOS 2000 swingarm that came with this to a NOS front triangle I have, and I've also managed to track down a NOS pro deluxe aswell as all the mounting hardware and DKG linkage.

Here it is with one of my other pullshockers :-)

Both look great. Always liked the different style of these frames.
