Here's my $50 Kijiji find before and after. Found the bike online near me and nabbed it. Always wanted one as a kid. I stripped it down and sold a bunch of the parts to fund most of the refresh. Might change a few more things ... namely the seat post and the brakes if I can, but its quite nice now. I took it in for the once over at my local shop and the whole store piled around it to get a peak. My tech guy just said to: "Put it away. You'll never have one like this again". I have another set of wheels with "riding tires" ... had to try it. Great bike. Rides amazing.

It's been out a few times. I have a set of modern panaracers and other rims I use. Its really is a good ride. The new tires make a big difference ... Tires have come along way. I have been stock piling skinwall vintage tires, but I always chicken out of using them.

Very nice mate, I also had a 92 S Works bitd as my first race bike, best hard tail I ever owned!

Just picked up a 93 stumpy and can't wait to build it :D

Thanks guys.

If anyone has a really nice or nos 26.8 Control Tech seatpost I would be interested. I'd like to finish the bike off with one of those.
