it's finally looking like a bike again.......slightly pic'n'mix components but it should all work fine together. Couple of small adjustments and then it's time to deNOS the tyres!!

Lovely frame - one of my favourite retro fullsussers! If I were ever to buy an AMP, it would have to be a twin-downtubed model like that.

Stunning 8) , great timing posting this too as i'm looking for inspiration for mine and there seems to be a dire shortage of AMP's on here.

Top job :wink:

it is indeed..........I've had it a long time, but it's never been quite 'right'. However the sourcing of a suitable stem from MountainbikeKult.de, thanks Andre, inspired me to rebuild it with it's original forks and Mavic headset (previously it had an A-head and alloy leg F2s, which have now been passed on to Cannondale King for his amp project)

It's probably my most Retro bike (don't know the exact year, anyone?) and I've tried to keep it reasonably period correct with what I had available.

If anyone has a NOS IRC Mythos K 1.95 rear tyre spare.........let me know.

That's now my AMP project :wink:

As for the year, it look's the same as mine with the twin down tube, was told mine is a 94 , though i'm guessing the F2's are later.

so I've just heard, those forks you got are virtually unused, what sort of build have you got in mind?
