Hi James,
Your build is looking sweet.
I thought I'd drop you a quick PM - rather than post on the forum.
I'm stuck in the same predicament as you - although I am looking for turquoise bits!
Have some silver bits and pieces - so maybe we could swap some parts which will allow us both to finish builds?
I have Pauls Love levers in silver, Stoplight MC canti's in silver, Hyperlite in silver, Grafton cantis in silver, Paul's levers in silver? Anything of interest?

Long time , no update- going to have a final push ,so its ready to race at Mayhem :oops:

Parts needed to finish, due to several build changes are :

Flite Saddle
XT brakes
XT brake levers

cable hanger

If you have anything suitable (around 1991 age in mint condition) , drop me a pm otherwise this build will go on for another year !
