I've had this for almost three years now, after buying it from another forum member over in Vancouver - thanks David :) Built from Tange Prestige Concept and finished in a tasty black/purple fade; it was finished August 21st 1992 and sold to Tailwind Cycles in Richmond, BC. I decided to keep the build relatively simple and plumped for reliable old XT for the most part. Got in a few post build snaps before getting it dirty.

It was a bit overcast when I took the pics. I'll get some more up when I get a chance. The frame, fork and stem were all part of the deal. It was pretty much a complete bike, minus wheels. It had a mostly Suntour XC Ltd groupset when I got it.

Cracking build, can’t fault in any way :)

Still hankering for a Brodie with Gatorblade someday!

Thanks for the nice comments chaps, hopefully I'll get the opportunity to ride it properly this weekend.

It's just the tip of the iceberg tbh Will - too many projects in the shed!
