SL it is then. 97... Your right. I think yellow could be cool. Silver stem,bars, post and skinwalls . Would be very cool. Your frame was a dream bike back in the day. And still is....Build it up!

This was a dream of mine too... until it became a reality. I can't wait to see how yours turns out.

Steve Potts making a new one... looks like new tube design, maybe internal cable routing and that leaf 'spring' downtube looks perfect for an ivy... jokes aside, a master at work:

I didn't strip them.. They are off a very used fork. Note the flame job!

NOS ones will stay in the box. I couldn't bear to even cut the steerer..

So...I have decided that this will be a 96/97 build. The bowti was first shown with a 96 judy, and Ive always liked the bolt on brace better, so this is where I am now headed with the fork:

Crown - Paul (Will be re-anodized clear)
Internals - Either Total Air or White springs with NOS 80mm White Cartridge / 97 80mm Judy Cartridge..undecided
Legs -96 Judy, Custom Painted (Titanium finish)
Decals - 96 Silk Screened
Hardware - Titanium
Bushings - New NOS
Brace -Custom painted to match Shockbone V brace (Titanium Finish), or Clear Ano V specific Dengler Brace (Still looking)
