There is a plan, fit a modern XT 10-speed groupset. Double chainrings, shadow+ clutch rear mech, v-brakes, modern Syncros kit, Ergon grips, Onza Canis skinwall tyres - with tubeless conversion, SDG Bel Air saddle plus some nice light wheels.

I know it's a bit controversial but I have done the period correct stuff to death so this one is for me.

Good on ya mate.
I've a worksop full of retro.
My Zaskar LE is a real bitsa.
Newer XT, Magura Tomac's, Specialized wheelset, Ritchey, Raceface and other stuff.
Go rapid rise on the rear. Excellent invention and I'll never look back.
Only parts I'll change is the frame to Xizang. Other than that excellent ride.
Good luck with your build :D

Watching this one with interest. Still in the middle of building up my Parkpre Team 925. You'll probably be built & riding before I get finished.

I now also have one of these, in a smaller size, also has had to be repaired, (also have a comp limited too) but I'm not struck on the decals, thinking of going with plain decals? they ride well, don't they just! Makes a change from Merlins, XiZangs, Litespeeds and HeiHei's! The geometry seems to be dialled better, with more stable handling.
Lovely condition, they weren't made for long were they? :mrgreen:
