Saw this frame on ebay and couldn't help myself!! Got to have it!
And now I do! Don't know why, just liked it!! :D Well it's my size anyway!

It's the top of the line of the 1992 Scott MTB's! See: http://www.retromtb.pl/pdf/scott1992.pdf

Got to get it over here, but allready bought myself a nice AT-3 bar so I can make it like in the catalogue! Got my eye on a Tange Big Fork also!

Needs new decals and a new paint job!

Here are some pics of it.

Love the Scott pro racings. I have a team cst ( not the full sus one), and my ride for my teens was a 1990 green and white one, still have it :)

I must say the ride is good, I'm biased thou

I think the rims were suppose to be m231s

According to the catalogue they were Araya RM-400 pro! hard to find though! :cry: Think I will be using RM20 or RM17

Want to see the frame first to see if it needs a repray allready! Otherwise I will build it up first and get it reprayed somewhere in the future! Will order 2 sets of decals, just in case!! :wink:

Cheers,
Bart

Bart, Araya RM395 Team rims would be slightly easier to find & very similar to the 400's (although with eyelets). I have accumulated a couple of sets over the last few years.

Finally some progress! Bought myself a NOS Scott AT3 bar and had BobCatMax design me some new decals! They look great!

Got the XTR brake/shifters, brakes, crank and rear mech! Still looking for a 28.6 M901 top pull (can swap for a 34.9 :wink:)

Here are the pics!
