Funny you should mention that as I just checked my e-mail and found the following reply to an e-mail I sent Mike at Purplelizard...

"This is actually kinda rare, as it was a team bike, given to a sponsored Grove rider in 1994. That is what the T stands for in the serial number: TEAM. I recognized the paint job - not a production paint run, that was team colors. That was also why it had the Suntour sticker, they co-sponsored Grove for a few years. Which is also why, when you got it, the parts were a mess - most likely the team rider cannibalized it and either let the frame sit, or built it up to sell."

How freakin' cool is that?!?! :D :D :D
