i love finding my old bike parts laying around...

...well I should clean out my garage more often?!

I need help as im missing a few parts and I am sure. I brought the bike with a few add ons from the shop back in 1998 things that I thought were cool :-)
including a chain stay that is absolutely gargantuan!!! one massive annoyance is that ive lost my f14 forks which were never on the bike as I brought a set of pea green marzocchi yoke forks. ill run through what I have on the bike but it is as I got it from the shop almost.

rims: WTB speed 11.3 master 23
hubs: front lx, rear lx silent clutch
tyres: my favourite part almost; onza porcupines
derailleur: STX
crank set: shimano alivio inter glide
rear cassette: lx 7 speed
bottom bracket: lx (long story I threw my old xtr one in the bin back in the day, gurrr)
frame: o2 17"
forks: cheap c#+p
head set: fsa new...
stem: original orange long stem, unknown name but came with the bike
bars: hot rod uncut
brake: avid v brakes front and rear with 2 finger avid ad 1.0 l levers
shifters: grip shift 6.0 srt, I have lx brakes and rapid fire shifters attached not sure which was the original?
seat: ritchey vector
post: found around the house; fell off as I normally do and bent the original post, oops
skewers: shimano quick release

I think that is about it...

if any one knows of any parts that are not original or require replacing please let me know, and if there is any one out there with a set of f14 forks let me know ;-)

That looks great as it is. What are you worried about?
