If there are no markings on the cassette that suggest IG then it is probably HG. I think sometimes the IG model was only identifiable on the cassette in the model number that was M737-I.

Sorry, this means that a HG90 chain would be the correct matching one

Read here for some illumination on the HG/IG subject:

Nice project, I have a 950 sitting in my basement that could use some TLC, one day maybe.

That must be where I read that you shouldn't mix them. Need to check one of my combo's now.

Well done so far...
I've got a 930 currently in parts. Completely different spec. to yours though. I've got Exage 500LX Cranks and 400 mechs. BB and Headset are Tange.
Loving the new decals, always a problem if your frame is beyond a cut and polish, is the scratched decals that you can't replace. Good call.

I just approved the decals. We will be printing them tomorrow!!

note the cut line matches the original exactly..my Graphic Designer is the biggest perfectionist I have every meet!

I am not doing the decals myself..no way I have the patience for this! A local graphic Artist is doing them. He can do others but he will need the frame to be exact..

Well I finally got the decals!..they have clear transfers so should be relatively easy to apply...and i have 4 sets if I mess up!..anyone need one?

So now I can finally have it striped and painted..excited to get going on this! It will be media blasted, primed, filled and then "Dez's Paint Shop" will apply a gold base and a translucent red top coat...should be an exact match!

What A Great thread.
I have a 930 slightly older than yours and probably in poorer condition. I have owned it from new 93ish? I think. It has not been riden for some years and has been neglected. Your thread has inspired me to want restore / make it better. I will strip the frame down and get it sand blasted to asses its conditon. If it is worth doing, do you think that your decal designer would sell me some decals ?

Another thought would it be worthwhile getting the frame powder coated.
I look forward to your replies.
