Another project begins! Got this from mattbrown's post in the ebay/marketplace section the forum and picked it up at the weekend.

Included in the price -

Orange Aluminium 'Elite' 17" frame, straight but in need of a good polish.

Rockshox Judy's 1 1/4" steerer

Orange 150mm zerorise 'Ali stalk'

Orange 'Hotrod' handlebars.

Shimano M730XT chainset.

Shimano M735XT shortcage rear mech.

Suntour MD front mech.

Shimano DX canti's? F+R

Mavic M231CD rim on XT hub.

'New' 7spd cassette and UN54 B/B

Pair of 'Velociraptor' tyres.

X-lite saddle....... all for the princely sum of £30! 8)


The frame needs a good polish, new decals and a bit of general TLC but is straight and ripe to join the boy"O"boy stable of O's! :D
Build plans are to keep it XT with polished stem and seatpost using as many of the original parts as I can. I also have a set of the 'Ali' forks. I may try these first to get that '92 brochure look, as the Judy's are a later fork..... but they look good though!?!.... decisions, decisions!
There's also an ongoing "O" single speed build awaiting a respray at the moment, so it looks like I'm going to be busy this year.

Enjoy....
boy"O"boy
