thanks guy's :D

I can't believe i let. it get into such a state before, it's a work in progress project, so i'll keep getting some bits for it to make it better as i go, i've put on the rockshox now with a new stem and bar, and headset. what a difference it's made! Cant believe it it's so much nicer to ride! So i'll keep my eye out for something better and a bit more retro, i'll put up some pics tomorrow 8)

That paint looks like my 1995 Fire Mountain.

Are you sure you've got a Cinder Cone underneath that paint?

Yeah, ordered it from my local bike shop where i used to do some work bitd, came with two cinder cone stickers which i didn't put on as i thought it was lieing at the time due to all the the random bit's i had on it lol it's black metalic paint i thought the lava had a green tint to it in 95? Might be wong tho?
