(New to the forums, be gentle with me!)
I managed to pick this up for £30 on Ebay a few weeks ago and was searching for any info I could find on it (Always wanted a decent FS bike but never really had the opportunity until recently, started on a mid-range steel rigid and had a fairly heavy Falcon FS for a while until it got stolen)...
Only issue I found with the frame was one of the rear shock mounting bolts was badly bent and in need of replacement - I've already found a suitable Ti one on ebay for a reasonable price.
The same evening I came across these to go with it for £70 (The're a set of almost mint RockShox Darts):
Currently in the process of building into a complete bike but due to a purchasing error on my part (I picked up a Deore crankset for £30 that turned out to be a Hollowtech 2 which came with the surprising bonus of an XT 10sp 11-36 cassette) it's not exactly going to be "retro" when completed
I've built a wheelset from a pair of Mavic XM117 rims XT front and Deore rear hubs (found out my wheelbuilding skills are still up to scratch even without using them for about 15 years) and have sourced an XT Dyna-sys rear mech (lightly worn and a bargain at £20).
Currently waiting on delivery of the mech and disc brake for the front (I'm sticking with V-brakes for the rear unless I find a cheap sharkfin).
I will post pics of the completed bike when I've got the rest of the bits (need chain and pedals to complete plus a pair of SPD shoes as I doubt I'll be comfortable on flat pedals offroad).
Future upgrade will likely be a better rear shock and I'll keep looking for a sharkfin

Just a y2k FSR with some modern bits
