I have had this for a while now, Starting getting bits together for it and stripped it more than once for different reasons mainly GT bikes :shock: ... I know this is a criminal thing to say and I hope it does not come across spoilt but I am just not feeling the love for it :?

Now what do you think in its current state? I am thinking maybe it should be taken back again to frame and built as 1994 period XT bike with cantis etc but also the idea was for it to be my hardtail workhorse for the summer so wanted V`s and SL`s ?

agggghhhh :cry:
