The story: a small ad on a site well known in France for a frame with a sticker Scott repainted Klein Dolomite way with a totally unreasonable price, I am the first and I buy, I had already recognized the Funk hidden.

A good cleaning, sanding and soon a new painting. :xmas-cool:

The dressing will be:

For wheels: Hubs Shimano Deore
Wolber rims AT400 Light Titanium
Stainless steel spokes
Ritchey WCS wheel locks
Ritchey WCS tires Zmax 2.10 NOS Skinwall

Headset: Tange 1 1/4 "black NOS
Stem: Black Noname 28.6
Handlebar: Noname black alu
Seatpost: Controltech 26.8 black
Saddle: Italia Flite Titanium
Locking saddle Shimano XT M730 NOS
Shifters / brake levers: XT ST-M091 combo NOS
Calipers: XT M732 cantilevers
Crankset: Shimano XT M735 NOS 28/38/48
Front derailleur: Shimano XT M735 NOS
Rear derailleur: Shimano XT
Chain: Shimano HG 91 NOS
Cassette: 7 speed XT Shamano
Pedals: Shimano M730 footrests

Pictures of the sequence of events follow :wink:

It will not in this color, I do not know yet how it will be but it will be a dress uniform.

For it will also fork with it is original because it is 1990, the beautiful fork Funk appeared rather 91 or 92 it seems :roll:

Looking forward to seeing another Funk develop.

Are there any markings on the forks that indicate they are Funk?

Cheers, Ash.

Very nice! That is the original fork, its exactly the same as the one that came on my Funk.

The one part that you may have a problem with is the front derailleur as the 1990 funk didn't have a cable stop on the seat tube. They used an additional stop in place of the derailleur cable clamp bolt and then bolted the cable to the BB, much like 1990 Yeti and Trek bikes.

Great find, looking forward to seeing this done!

I think the fork is a Spinner, I will check tomorrow. :wink:

I found this little piece for the front derailleur, I should soon have :roll:
