This is going to be a mostly XT M739 build. Period where possible.
Cockpit together. Period X-Lite risers and Zoom stem. M740 shifters as I found a nice set and Avid levers as I still have not been able to get a pair of M739 levers at the right price in the right condition.
But I have just missed loads.
Stem even has period MBUK sticker.
Forks are '99 build Z3.5s. Apart from perished seals they seemed pretty decent. No marks on the stanchions at all. Until I took off the bridge. Horrible nasty rub mark and scratch hiding there.
Stripped for new seals, oil and a wee polish. Will see how they do once built, but might be looking for a replacement already.
And last pic for today is my only concession to weenieism. Titanium bottle cage bolts.
The bike won't even have a cage as I don't like them but as I had robbed the steel ones on it to fit a rack to another bike they needed replaced.
