Get drunk and buy one stupid inappropriate item off e-bay.
Then spend the next year trying to get matching bits.....that dont fit.
God the cup is half empty today.

By the decals I think that's a 92. Very nice :)


Yeah, I would agree a late '92 or even later (my money is on 1993).....they stopped doing e-stays by '94, but it's definateley the later logo. (Mine is a '92 with the older logo)

Good job too cos if it's a '91 then its too early for M900 XTR :wink:

They did swap the tubing ( IIRC it's in the MBUK article) - the downtube Dia is the giveaway I think - that will tell you what tubeset it is. Like most boutique builders I'm sure there was overlap / stock etc that got mixed up decal wise no doubt. Tubing dia is at least more reliable than the decals (which aren't reliable), and your right on the welds in that they smoothed them on the newer frames, I'm less sure when that happened, and again whether it was at exactly the same time as the new tubing.

The PINK was highly metallic on a pic of a frame I saw recently, but I also remember a matt version.

White "FUNK" text please :)
