I'd bet 50p that it is M739, but I have an (almost) decal-less, Flite topped, polished aluminium early nineties bike with an M739 mech on it too!

Not entering it, though :D

Most of the people voting don't care about accuracy it's not a concours competition after all
I hate seeing modern gear on lovely old bikes it's just lazy but each to their own eh

I wouldn't say M739 is exactly modern... Anachronistic, yes

But in my case: Bang to rights mi'lud... got four M732 mechs doing bugger all, even been thinking about fitting one...

I read the title of the comp and thought about entering something. Then I saw the Comp-Lite and thought again ;) That's a stonker.

(Bikes can be made to stand up in pictures without Photoshop, but you need an assistant ;) )

Wish granted:
My 1996 Klein Adroit with Burgundy-Blue Linear Fade paintjob and Strata fork.
This is one of the last Adroits with a real Adroit frame (2" downtube).
Equipped with XT M737 and Tune parts + alu bolts, it weighs 9,4 kg.
