Judy's are indeed period correct and would look awesome on this frame. But the '96 Judy SL is bright yellow, I don't think that's a good match, colour-wise.

Nice.
Fork-wise: Powerlites! That frame screames for Syncros all around :).

Thanks all for the comments. I'll try to source a Judy, but indeed an yellow one wouldn't match the color. But it can be painted black (Rolling Stones?) right?

@RockiMnt: That's a cool bike, hope mine gets close. I have those Raceface Next LP cranks on my GT (only in black).

@Double-E F: I have Syncros parts on my other old bike, an old '94 GT RTS 1. So for this one, I'm looking for something different.

This is the state she's in now...

I found a Dura Ace 7700 GS derailleur in my drawer together with some XT shifters from BITD. The UN-71 I has was 73mm, but the frame uses a 68mm bracket shell, so I installed it with a 2.5mm spacer on the driveside.

Paint, sparkles!

Cranks, does anyone know the year these were made? There are some numbers on the inside.

Rear derailleur, Shimano Dura Ace 7700 GS. Still looking for a nice XTR (900 or 950) one.

Next piece of the puzzle arrived, a red Selle Flite. And a ti Syncros seatpost is in the mail.

think this deserves nicer brake levers.

if you end up sourcing and go with a m950 rear mech, i have a front 28.6/top pull to match if needed. ;)

I have an XT top pull FD m737 in mint condition (I don't think it has been used). Not a complete match, but close :) The brake levers will have to do for now. Maybe I'll try to source a set of M950 levers/V-brakes, but for now I'm satisfied to get it running.

And since I got an m900 rear derailleur for my RTS, the m950 goes on the Blizzard. It's a bit battle scarred, and will have to be replaced sometime. It shifts well though.
