Finished last weekend:
Frame is a 94 Race Lite S/M that I bought from Jez of "The Fridge". It suffered a run in with a carport that eventually side lined the frame around 2000.
Had the top tube and paint redone at Bob Jackson's, hence the top tube sticker problem.
Stem/bar is a one peice that I got from Germany.
Drive train is almost all NOS XT II stuff.
Wheels are NOS Red/Blue spots (I know came out in 96) and Smoke/Dart.
The fork is also new and is a non sus corrected so I had the little shim made to bring the front back up to correct angle.

Yes have two mare snaps. I think I need a better camera.....

Also some other items:
Pedals are Titan Ti's from way baack when.
Grips/Bar ends are new-ish but seem to be exact copies of the 94 era models.
Chainstay protector is Ice hockey tape. Used to use it all the time BITD.

Thanks Guys for the comments. Thought that I was going to get some questions on the headset spacer? Maybe it works well enough that no one noticed?
