One of the best bike stories/reunions/restorations I've ever heard about. Well Done to yourself and everyone involved getting the bike back to you.

Amazing story !!!
Thank you for sharing your story
There are things in life that are inexplicable ....
I'm trying to compose the bike which I dream since 93 '... I understand what you had to feel at each stage of the reconstruction .... You are a Happy Man !

Just a little update. As much as I loved the IRD stem and brakes, I decided to go with a closer to original build, with XT M730 brakes and 4 finger levers, and a Salsa stem with more rise. It feels much better now, and my back thanks me. This bike loves to get out on the trails, and the more upright riding position ensures that I keep the bike higher in the rotation...
