Thanks fellas. :wink:

I was remiss in thanking a few RBers for helping me with info or parts for the build:
- Lid for the brake levers
- manitou916 for the Manitou 1
- LQQK for key info about Boulders
- Crantinope for the 8mm brake housings

I did a lot of flip-flopping on this build (start at page 1 and you'll see what I mean), but I finally made up my mind to go with the XT kit a few months ago. I couldn't be happier -- it's a classic look. 8)

After a long hiatus. I've made some progress here. I took the build in a completely new direction after I used most of parts I had earmarked for the Boulder on the Zaskar. Now I'm going period correct with the full XT M730 kit and Manitou 1 forks. Here are some current pics. She should be finished very soon. 8)


Never saw this thread till today. Inspired choice to change direction and go the period route. Looks great :)
