I got this frame and forks in a job lot I have done a little research and it seems to be 94-95 can anyone tell me what groupset it would have had so i can rebuild it authentically. I really like the look of one i found on google that was on ebay. Anyone got an old catalogue of these?
Thanks for any info,

I had a Grisley Orion 10 in '94 which I think was the same bike but without the silly fat heavy tubing - it had the same odd but pretty seat stays/crossbar arrangement.

The fork was Marzochi Zokes which wasn't too bad but like the rest of the bike, far too firm. All the other components were Acera-X which were awful, so I upgraded all the components over time to a mixture of Deore LX and XT as I found bits cheap or used in good condition. I managed to snap one of the cranks jumping in Epping Forest, which gives you some idea of how bad the components were.
