Frame is at the local frame builder and I've cleaned two rear mechs, in two minds which build to go for, the original Deore or XT II, the Deore is in really good condition and I've managed to source nearly all an XT groupset some bits NOS and the rest in good condition.

Started on the chainset, the Biopace rings are in really good condition, gave them a good clean and a scrub, still loads of life in them, started on the crank arms, started polishing them by hand as I didn't want the logo damaged, I've got an XT crank coming so I've decided to hold on finishing it off until I've decided which way i'm going on the build .

Got a NOS XT II seat post QR and two NOS rear skewers, I was planning on cutting one down and re threading it to make a front but now need to check the diameter as I've been told the threads were rolled not cut.
