Right, after having been nagged by ChrisV40 to add a thread on this little beauty, I have given in!

Picked this up two weeks ago from a member on here Marty455, who has done an amazing job of creating a very close replica of Jason's bike from the video 'Dirt'

The video, Jason and this bike were a massive influence on my teenage mountain biking years, and at the age of 14 I only wanted two things in life, Jason's ink, and Jason's bike!

Twenty two year later and I now have both!

Frame: 1995 Specialized S-works Team

Fork: Rock Shox Judy FSX

Headset: Onza Mongo III
Stem: Azonic Shorty
Handlebar: Azonic high rise
Grips: Onza Ules in yellow
Barends: N/A

Brakes: Marin Lite re-annodised red and spring covers machined down to emulate Avid Tri-align
Brake Pads: Marin Lite
Brake Cables: Unknown
Cantilever cable hangers: Acor red anno to emulate avid ones
Brake Levers: Avid ultimate in red

Shifters: Grip Shift x-ray with replica decals
Front Derailleur: Shimano STX (until a suitable M900 turns up)
Rear Derailleur: Shimano M900
Derailleur Cables: Unknown
Cassette: Shimao M737
Chain: Unknown
Cranks: Shimano M900
Crank Bolts: M900
Chainrings: M900
Chainring bolts: M900
Bottom Bracket: Unknown
Pedals: Odessey Triple Traps

Hub Skewers: Specialized rear, Shimano front
Rims: Mavic 117 SUP CD
Hubs: Nukeproof front, Shimano LX rear
Nipples: Unknown
Spokes: DT
Tyres: Panaracer Smoke & Dart re-issues
Tubes: Continental

Saddle: Grey GT (wrong brand but correct colour)
Seatpost: Specialized
Seatpost Binder: Specialized

Outside the shop where Martyn works as i was collecting it, nice nine hour round trip to go get the old girl too!

Then a few days later i decided to swap out the splashbacks for something more aesthetically pleasing, so the smoke and darts went on...

And the week after, i went up the coast a way, to visit places where Dirt was actually filmed, having been and reccied some areas previously, I knew exactly where to go, and the weather was simply amazing!

Ahh did you supply the forks too then as Martyn said they both came from the same place!
I've done a couple of tiny bits more to it since these pics, I've had some grip shift decals made my Gil added, and I've just fitted some fatter releasable tie wraps to the crud catcher like they originally came with and like Jason had on his originally in dirt!
