Here's my P7, bought new in 1997 (frame manufactured end 1996).
Ive owned this since new, in 12 years its never looked better!!

I know some parts are not strictly retro, but most of it is - 1997 Nos XT gears/cranks/chain/sprockets, srt800 Xrays, M217 sunset rims etc, and I think m960 v brakes are the nicest brakes ever!!!

See what you think

Big thanks to Tim for tweaking the forks for a fat bloke...
