After taking me halfway around the world and back (literally), then sitting abandoned in the loft for years, I've finally got my 1993 KHS Montana Comp built again. It looks almost nothing like it did when new - the only original parts are the frame and fork, stem, panaracer smoke dart and the M651 front mech. All other parts have come from the spares box or here and ebay.
I've tried to keep everything more or less from the same period, but there are a few bits on there where cost had to give way (the NOS deore DX 26.8 seatposts on ebay were highly tempting, but so far I have managed to resist the urge). Even the cables and outers have been recycled!
I'm still waiting for some barends, and a proper seatpost bolt (please excuse the temporary fix!)
The frame and fork were repaired years ago, and extra pannier eyelets added to the fork. I've recently had them repainted (along with the stem) in the colour they are now. I decided against going back to the original colours, as difficulty finding the right shade of fluo pink and cost were against me. I'll be using the bike to ride to work mainly, so didn't want anything too flashy. It'll be getting slicks and maybe even converted to single speed for that though.
I'm undecided if I should fit some more modern KHS decals to it or not - opinons please!
Please excuse the photos, taken with my phone as I've lost my camera!
