Nice pickup. Looks clean and it should make a great riding bike. What specifically are you looking to refurbish?

I'd immediately ditch the Altus and STX parts and replace with something higher end.

That's a lovely bike as is...... I echo what Ameybrook has said, go for a nice XT or XTR rear mech. Perhaps an older (but fully refurb'd) Manitou fork, maybe a Flite saddle, and it's more or less good to go.

I want to change the fork out,I really like a rigid ride. The problem is a accutrac is too short.

Plenty of suspension corrected 26" modern rigid forks available. Xotic, Bontrager, all on ebay. Something more exotic could made for some more $$.

I really want something closer to period correct. maybe a p2 or something. I looked into getting fork blades made for the mag 21. They look pretty rad.
