This 'ere bike is what I have built up for my Dad for Christmas, to replace a '91 Marin Eldridge Grade which has seen better days. He'll only be riding it on road but likes mountain bikes, so I figured I could build up something old but in really good condition at a cheapish price, rather than something newer with naff suspension forks and cable discs. It's not totally Old Skool, in that I chose to use V brakes and Aheadset front end for functionality but it's got bits like '91 XT front hub, Mavic 231 rim, DX cranks and front mech XT rear mech etc.
The frame is a '91 Muddy Fox Alu Pro if I remember right:
