Now finished..about bloody time too.
A bit of history on it. The previous owner bought it in 93 in Little Rock, Arkansas, rode it a couple of times and then the bike was put on display in Chainwheel Bikes, Little Rock. He then moved back to the UK but the bike stayed in storage in the bike shop until last year when he got them to ship it over....and then I got it. Spec as follows:

16" Manitou FS with Manitou stem and Moby post, M900 running gear, Grafton SCII brakes, Yeti Hyperlite bars, interesting wheels (Ringle Ti-Stix hubs on Mavic 231's with Ti bladed spokes!!) with Ringle Ti Stix skewers, NOS Ritchey WCS tyres, Onza HO ti pedals.
Will be interesting to see how well(or badly) it rides as I've heard varying reports and hopefully it won't crack...at least not straight away.

Anyway, a few pics..

That is how to build a bike with "great taste".

Nice job.
