That would be amazing although thats a slightly different frame. I remember seeing and picking up this bike at a show back in the day, truely mind blowing and the forks were lovely.

My build will take a slightly different direction helped by the fact most parts are easier to get hold of! Hoping to get the forks this week!

Well I say full steam ahead, I am still to find XTR outers. Does anyone know if I can use modern grey xtr outers - are they the same? I want it as period correct as possible?
