Roy, just a couple of pictures of the bare frame at the moment. I've got a pile of components, so I should do a build thread really! I'm planning on a fairly understated build, all old school but not necessarily close to the exact year.

Nice buy. I'm thinking 1991 or thereabouts too, almost certain pre 1993.

I have an IBOC pro SX carbon, bought new as a frameset believe it is a 1993. I got it from a racing team and it was sold to me as a "spare" frame. The extra SX moniker is for "Shox" and indicates suspension corrected geometry.

Enjoy!!

THE GOOSE IS LOOSE!!! :)

got the mongoose back on the trails this past week.
big thanks to roc6839 for his help and contributions.
all of this wouldn't have been possible without him taking time out of his busy schedule to give me a hand.
greatly appreciated.
it's a very nice bike to ride.
i can see this one getting a fair bit of use.

Super 'Goose!

You took your time but did a very good job on it. It's been ages since I saw one in steel. Thanks for sharing, it's bikes like this that bring a smile to my face every time.

One comment, you mount the font IRC Mythos tire with the tread reversed, is it on purpose? I've used front specific Mythos's as a rear tire with the tread reversed, but not like this.

Enjoy!!
