To continue the Litespeed saga, here is a version from 1992. It is recognizable from previous years by its reported seatpost collar, pullet for the front derailleur and the chainsuck device. The versions of the following years are called Ocoee and Obed.
I plan to mount it with the Suntour XC Pro Micro Drive group, new for 1993.
For the rest a Spinner fork, Ritchey combo and seatpost Syncros ...

I see that we have the same taste. I count 2 litespeed at my collection. I love the xc Pro which remains for me a reference of the same level as M900.

it will be necessary to change the cantilevers and the crankset which does not work for the right period.

I agree with you, the Suntour XC pro is as good as the Shimano XTR M900, it's surprising.
For your confirmation, the Micro Drive crankset is new in 1992, it is only the brakes which are from 1993.
