both would be nice, but i think the 950 would really look great on that bike

I just love yellow Psyclones! :D

Black Bologna fork and black Flip-Flop stem are a great combo! You should definately take a black seatpost.

Here is a pic of the 92 Psyclone with the same colour combination:

I'd prefer a black Flite saddle - the brown is one colour too much.

I term of time-correctness the 1999 XTR 952 isn't perfect but I am sure the build will look nice and perform extremely well. Alternatively you could go XT 735 with black XT 734 brakes, black chainrings or crankarms and black hubs. Pretty rare stuff though...

thanks. but the frame won't stay yellow, it will be different. it won't have any color at all so you can see the golden fillet brazes ;)

M900 or M952 - that's the question ...
