The rear wheel is not original so i think i am going to replace it. Should be a Suntour XC-Pro hub, freewheel and Mavic M261 CD Rim.

Not 100% identical (top tube) but same drop-out, distinctive cable guides and canti-stop with hole in it, wishbone seat stay... Certainly came out of the same Taiwan factory at the same time :wink:

I know there's people on here who can figure out which factory from the serial number :?:
