After ages and ages trying to get some decent wheels and tryes, finally manage to souce some Mavic 231's on XT hubs, and some Amberwall tyres!

Photos taken on my phone, but dont look too bad.

I still have to find some more rims to build my Bullseye Hubs (cant wait now for that!!)

My next plans for this bike is: original Syncros post & XT Thumbies and get the Bullseye's fitted, and i think that will complete this build and then will be on the hunt to do a HLF Attitude or Gator.

Anyway here she is:

Yes indeed, cassette is also on my list to change.

The year is 1991 (early)..... and thanks for the offer of the araya but I am looking for another pair of mavics to build on the bullseyes.

Thanks for the comments this bike was the only bike "i always wanted" and actually truley did/do.. My wife laughs at me when I want something, its what i always wanted!... No really love, this bike is :)
