I've just collected this sad specimen from an eBay seller and need some build ideas. I was thinking maybe all black and single speed. The S-Works was a top-end hard tail so it should end up quite tasty. All I've done so far is squirt bits with WD40 prior to disassembly. I'd like it to look older than it is, which is ~1999. Here are the eBay photos.

OK, this is what my £62 got me! Now fully stripped and waiting for a plan, single speed I think.

Great frame for the price.

Light as anything as you can probably tell & great geometry

A bit of progress here, I've bought;

Cannondale Fatty R fork - eBay
Single speed kit (tensioner & sprocket/spacers) - eBay
Set of black Deore Ocatlink cranks - RetroBIKE
Scrounged a set of risers from Reluctant!

I did a dry build today as I had a bit of time, I think I like the look and position of the risers best. The saddle & stem are from my spares box. I also had a rummage and have some XT M739 v-brakes which will go on as soon as the other bits turn up. The forks look awesome!
