IF you are going to ride it, you have to be aware that these Ti stems tend to crack. Or to put it right: They fail, you just don't know then. 8)

I've been fortunate enough to have an old fsr given to me... minus the shock. So was wondering ... recommendations for shock.. shock length ? and would really really appreciate it if someone could steer me in the directions of a good decal source for these... cause I'm going to have to respray it and I want to do it justice...

going to drape it in m900 gear...

and I'm going to ride it like I stole it... like all my vintage girls. That's what they where designed to do... no be garage queens

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.
