Here's my 1997 Ibis Hakkalügi. I built it up as a go-anywhere, do-anything adventure bike. Accordingly, it's got an eclectic mix of road and mountain parts. (For example, I chose an extra-stout 36-hole rear wheel that can accommodate heavier touring loads).

Aside from the bike's all-around versatility (and sparkly Gang Green color), my favorite thing about it is the buttery steel ride!

The build:

54 cm frame with full touring braze-ons (and the infamous Hand Job!)
Shimano Ultegra bar-end shfiters
Shimano Ultegra 600 brake levers
TTT Forma SL handlebars
Shimano XT headset
Salsa stem, 120mm
Shimano M951 XTR cranks & BB, 5-arm, 48-36-26, 8-speed
Shimano M739 XT rear derailleur, with Avid Rollamajig
Shimano M900 XTR front derailleur
Shimano M739 XT cassette, 11-30, 8-speed
Shimano IG90 chain, 8-speed
Shimano Ultegra 600 front hub, 32 hole
Shimano M737 XT rear hub, 36 hole (135 mm spacing)
Shimano XT cantilever brakes
Syncros Seatpost
WTB SST saddle
Mavic Reflex Rims
Continental CountyGrip Tires
Cinelli cork tape

Mind blowing welding, looks like fillet brazed or it is fillet brazed?

One of the things I always appreciated about Ibis is that it's always been funky and different (especially the original incarnation of the company, in the 1980s-90s, before various changes in ownership).

When I bought my Hakkalügi in 1997, the Ibis catalog had almost no photos. Here's the original write-up on mine:

Add a set of riser bars and I think I'd fall deeply in love!

My Planet X Kaffenback is similar to this; built up as a jack of all trades crosser/roadie/tourer.

How much did you pay for the frame?

I don't recall for sure, as I bought the frame 14 years ago, but I know that retail was USD $995 at the time. I was working at a bike shop when I bought the Ibis, and I got employee pricing...I think I paid around USD $700 in 1997. That's just a guess, though...
