Cheers! The rear is Speed Metal, same kit on the brakes and derailleurs. I have another hanger but I can't figure it out, here it is.

Looks like your straddle wire sits in the bottom, horizontal groove, then the brake cable is held in the groove that curves around from top to the right of the pic?
Nice build. Finish it!

That was my best guess too. It pulls to one side due to the offset of the clamped cable that way. And thanks, yeah I was second highest bidder on some nos green love levers. Thought I was going to have that one but that's the way it goes. Still searching.

Thanks for the info on those bits, stuff I already have though.
What do you guys think of turning this into a rasta build? I'm afraid I'm not much good at pulling off builds so I'd appreciate input, good or bad.

Finally figured this little guy out. Not much left to do but sort out the XTR shift pods and collect a little more green and red.
