Here's a project I've been looking forward to. A NOS 1994 Specialized FSR.

Its comes with ti stem, specialized seat post and fsx forks all NOS as well.

The only mark is the on the down tube which is about very small, other than that its mint.

Now starts the long journey finding the rest of the NOS parts to build it.

It's a small world -- I made a deal to buy that frameset, but apparently I didn't pay quickly enough and it was sold from under me. Good luck with the build and tell Larry I said "hi". :roll:

If the alps 5 is dried out etc, risse racing in California still rebuilds them.

Do they have the same top tube length as the 18" stumpjumpers? If I recal correctly they were a bit shorter :?:
