Funk pro comp 1992

Greetings and welcome to my unicorn build ! I'm the proud owner of a 1992 Funk pro comp ......i know i'm a lucky bugger ! This bike will be my favourite in my collection aesthetics wise anyway. I've always loved the e-stay design and it sparked off a run of these types of bikes for me. A Funk was always out of reach of my shallow pockets back in the day though. All I could do was drool over the pictures in the magazines.

This frame came up for for sale recently and I had to have it ! 8)

Which direction for the build now ? I don't know if to go for XTR M900 or XT 735 , at the moment i'm edging towards XT. Unfortunately I don't have a Funk fat fork so will be using an Answer Manitou 1 up front. We'll see what happens though.

Some pic's to wet your appetite :

That looks amazing in the purple colour! Its going to look fantastic and I think the Manitou forks look good on it.

I'd also vote for XT on it too.

Thanks guys ,really appreciate the comments ! I'm really gonna enjoy this build. This bike may evolve through out the year though.

@ James (gravy monster) this is another Funk frame that i picked up fella. After finding the crack on the first Funk frame I bought I needed cheering up so I bought this beauty ! The other frame will be sorted out in 2012. I'll be in touch for advice and help on the repair. :wink:
