Picked up this a little while ago and have been upgrading it since! Thought I would make a little thread to add ask questions and see what you guys thought!

Heres how it looks now

I know its not all retro (cranks etc) but hey ho. Just bought some new wheels (retro hope xc hubs laced to some old school Mavic x517) and brakes (Avid angle digit 7). But am still looking for some brake boosters (either DKG or Salsa if anyones got them?) Some decent tan wall tyres and am swapping the Thosmon seat post over from my road bike. I'll post another picture soon! Plus anyone riding XC in Bristol?

Nice. Tyres look good, even if modern. How I have mine!
