Mostly LX M560 groupset, apart from front mech (XT) and shifters/brake levers (STX)

Picked up a NOS date stamped 1993 Purple Uno stem, and have a load of CHill Pills kicking around, and also some other puple bits,

Think ill get some new decals, and thanks to Old School Pete for the MBUK test scan of this bike, looks like the same problem happened to this frame, as to the MBUK test, where the rear brake bosses came loose, and on this frame completely removed, so i did a mod to the frame (drill a hole into the wishbone rear stay) to fit a BMX v brake adapter,

Yes that is a Kona brake hanger on the rear.
