It is definitely a 1999 model, the last of the true clockworks before the model was discontinued.

Yes got a nice set of Orangey-red Real levers, but although the Forks work really well, may look for some late 90's black Manitous or Pace, butPace have too much lead as the steerers are Angled and makes the steering a bit flip flop!

I'm digging the matching clothes pegs! It's attention to detail like that which does it every time for me...

yeah i get where your coming from with that but i used all the parts off my old pantera (mainly black lx) and it looked a bit cack. ive got some judy lowers coming off slimjoe that im going to colour match to the frame so i mite try my xtr m950 cranks/ hubs and see if that looks a bit more subtle? 8)
