I have had this about 7 months and finally found the last bits to complete it.

I bought it as a frame and fork only. I was lucky enough to find a Ritchey fillet brazed bull moose bar in the same colour.

The paint and decals are all original, it does have some very minor scratches but it looks great! The patina is nice because I will ride it and won't have to worry about it.

Also was lucky enough to find 2 sets of NOS grab on grips and plugs still in the package, they are not on yet.

Everything else will be as it was originally built with the exception of the yellow Selle Turbo seat. I have an NOS Specialized Delta black seat that would have come with it but I like the yellow one.

Many thanks to Rob (Golden Era), Noah (BushPig), and Gordon (Manitou916) for supplying me with some hard to find bits.

Will post more photos as the build continues....

Need more pics, though! :wink:

The twin strut bar looks better than I imagined, and the yellow turbo is different, but nice, touch. If you ever decide to move on from this bike (I doubt it), the bar will be welcomed back home with open arms.

You put together a tight old mountain bike, my friend; very cool.

Yep, those are nice bars, but not brazed-check out the smooth transitions between the tubes vs. the standard welding. Good on you to keep your eye out though!

Great build Rocco, can't wait to see pics of you riding. 8) 8)
