Will be nice once finished.

The red one looks like a well matched build.

I also like the grey A/S...

thanks the red one needs a few finishing touches i'm going to remove the silver headset and put a black one on and i need to sort out the rear canti hanger as im using an al-mega one at the moment

The grey has a purple seatpost coming and some m095 lever / shifters going on

as for the blue Al-mega its going to have a new paint job same blue but pearl effect and a mix of XT / XTR silver parts hoping to get some special graphics for it something like Al-Mega ICustom build

The MS Racing will one day get completed :oops:

I'm not that sure to be honest mate I thought it was a CR1
What I do know is it needs a lot of TLC

Thanks I love the grey cro-mega it was such a lucky find and it was just the right size for me
I have such nice plans for the blue al mega though its going to be my first full rebuild from scratch going for a repaint same blue but pearl effect going to ask Gil to make me some custom graphics as I'm not too keen on some of the Astars graphic for 1992 model 1991's were so much nicer starting to gather parts already going for a XT / XTR set up going to stick with mainly silver parts would like a set of silver turbines for it got mavic cross wheels or campy ateks already with butterscotch pyscho's hopefully will get it done before the end of summer

well i have stared work on the Blue Al-Mega thought i would sort out the parts for her before sending it off to be painted

So far new 1 1/4" headset stand-in (waiting till i can afford a Chris King 2nut Silver)
USE bars and bar ends
UNO stem (completely lets the side down was thinking silver Syncros)
M900 canti's with Black Xlite Canti bolts
M735 front and rear derailleurs
original Alpinestars cable guide and seat QR
Mavic yellow cross wheels
Ritchey seatpost (For now want a silver one)
Azonic saddle (for now i think a Flite may be required)
