As promised, some crappy phone pics of the "new" FSR at my old LBS. Pretty sure this frame is a '98. Forks are '99 Showa DH. He has a another NOS pair in there as well. Regards the FSR the guy told me the Specialized reps always go up and have a perv at this one when they come in the shop.
And my score of the century. Must show these beauties off. NOS 2001 Super T Pros. We spent about half an hour today hunting the axle and went we found it, it was with the manual, all sealed up, never been opened. Very, very stoked.

I've got one!
He won't split the bike and the rest of the parts are kind of bleh. I love the forks, they are actually air forks, but I can't even find any info about them in Japanese, let alone English and the seals need replacing. I'll keep working on him.

That's what I was wondering! Looks good though, nice to see that old beauty on display instead of rusting in a shed. Although someone needs to take it out to shred a little ;)

Those bombers are pristine! I wish I could have found a pair that nice. Make sure to post some update pics when you get them on. That FSR is gonna be a beast!

Shifter is on the left hand side of the bars, it's hidden by the camera angles. Odd that it's on that side but there's a lot odd about this bike as it's built. One of the reasons I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on it.
As regards the Super T forks, don't have a 20mm wheel (sold my D521 on a Hope Bulb in January- you fool VB, you fool) so first thought was to flip them but they're way too pretty for that. Any advice on forks that have been sitting for ages like that? The seals look OK but the action seems a bit stiff. No "Marzocchi squelch" for want of a better phrase so I'm thinking new oil at the very least.
BTW can you guys tell I have a Marzocchi fetish?

Was one of my dreams to own every Marzocchi double crown from the late 90s to early 2000s.

Anyone seen or have Therapy converter for a cross ride hub? Looking like no one in the UK stocks them anymore! Seems like it would be the best solution to enable me to run a disc on my 98 extreme..
Cheers

could also try the onza adapter:

or try these mods to existing disc adapters:
