I have something new in the house. :) As the deal took months to complete, I had time to get the parts in the meantime so the build was very quick. Here a few pics with my mobile phone prior to fitting the cables:

Shifters: Shimano XTR
Front Derailleur: Shimano XTR
Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR
Cassette: Shimano CS-M737
Chain: Shimano Dura Ace
Crankset: Shimano XTR
Bottom Bracket: Klein integrated, 108mm steel
Pedals: Suntour XC Pro champagne

Hub Skewers: Ringle Ti-Stix
Rims: Mavic 230

I will add some decent pics once the weather allows me to! ;)

It seems to be in a VGC. I like how you have assembled it with silver components.
Congratulations!
