I signed up here a while ago to share my road bike project (still in the 'parts gathering' stage, by the way :roll:), and have been glued to the MTB section lately. So many amazing bikes in equally amazing condition.

Anyway, here's my own retro MTB. A 1998 (?) 'Fisher Ziggurat, bought on ebay, then fixed up into good, usable condition. The frame is scratched, dented and beaten, and it could use a new headset. Also considering a fork upgrade in the near future. Otherwise, though, it's a great 'everyday', old-school XC rig.

Frame: Easton 6061 butted aluminium

Fork: Rock Shox Judy

Headset: Aheadset
Stem: Bontrager
Handlebar: Bontrager 'comp'
Grips: foam BBB
Barends: original Gary Fisher items (removed)

Brakes: Avid 20
Brake Pads: Avid
Brake Cables: generic
Brake Levers: Avid SD 1.9L

Shifters:
Front Derailleur: Shimano LX
Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR
Cranks: Shimano XT
Pedals: modern SPD's

Hub Skewers: Kore
Rims: Mavic X517
Hubs: Hope front, XT rear
Tyres: Maxxis Cross Mark front, Larsen rear

Saddle: WTB
Seatpost: Bontrager

Weight: 11.2KG (24.7lbs)

Thanks :D. The photos are actually quite flattering, though. It doesn't look quite so nice in the metal.

I used to race one of those.
Mine was xt/xtr equipped with 10th anni magura's and spinergy rev x rocks wheels. Too bad it broke.
It got replaced under warranty by a mt.tam. I loved the colors of the zigurat.
