This one is going to be shiny....

Amp Research B3 frame and forks purchased for my next project; about to start the build:

Bits and pieces gathered so far:

Frame/Forks: Nice B3 with F2 fork. Came from original owner purchased in 1995 - great condition, well looked after
Mechs: Came with the frame, nice XTR M950 front, M850 rear mech
Brakes: XTR M950 V-brakes
Levers: XT M739 (may not be the final choice)
Crankset: Middleburn RS1, Silver polished, blue spider
Stem: Syncros Cattlehead (polished silver) or Tune (blue) - can't quite make my mind up - may take votes...!
Bars: Answer Hyperlite, Silver
Seatpost: Thompson Masterpiece Layback, Silver
Wheelset: Mavic Gao Dakar hubs on Mavic 231 CD rims

More to follow - thanks to all the helpful and honest traders on here so far for helping with parts....

Syncros stem please! "The stem colour should match the forks" (Leviticus 19:14)

Will be finding a few blue bits to match this beauty. Will keep it subtle though, i think. Skewers, seat clamp a few bolts, perhaps a brake booster....
