I haven't a single part for the bike as it stands so this is going to be a lengthy affair :(

I think I may stick some green wildgrippers on it, think they would look nice against the yellow 8)

By the oval gusset on down tube it will be 92-94, 94 onwards had a later v shaped gusset. Whats the frame number? Should start with year and then an S (for S works) or a T if its earlier team frame.

First two numbers in the serial number on the non drive side rear drop out indicate the year.

So I received the frame today, turns out the seller on ebay was a member on here 'retrokona'.

I've checked the serial and the 1st 2 numbersl are 93 followed by s so its a 1993, the frame overall is in a very nice state so very pleased.

Can anybody tell me what size seatpost/front mech this frame takes? The headset size looks like a 1 inch.

Unsure what fork I'm gonna use? Depends what I can get hold of, would love a Judy FSX fork, but also wouldn't mind trying a direct drive fork.

Regarding the fork: either rigid Direct Drive or Future Shock FSX (Carbon/Ti would be sweet).
