I've had this since new - the original decals fell off one hot summer so ran it for years without any, then got these NOS '94 factory decals a few years ago

I was going to do a factory spec rebuild then thought nuts to it all and rebuilt it to how I wanted it - it screams 1994 to me, its like I've just finished college for the day and am off out somewhere.

the azonic stem has been with the frame for 12 years, so no need to change it :wink:

I've been riding drops on MTBs for about 7 years, so, well, like I said - could've built original, but decided to stay Tomac style.

I agree that you could have built a traditional steed, and compliment you for being brave and straying off the 'safe' path.......but the bars just aint working for me. Sorry.

With the beautiful forks (Bonty or Syncros?) the bars look too big and chunky.

Other than than, I thinks she's stunning. A splash or colour, but not too in your face.

Go on....change them bars dude :wink:

Got to agree, PLEASE change the bars. I know it's all down to personal taste and I hate drop bars even on drop bikes :twisted:

I like your style man. It definitely stands out from the rest of the Zaskar pack. Very nice. 8)

I like it and my next project should be very similar, do you have a full spec list or even what tyres are those? Are they a semi slick type.
