Here are the first photos of my new Race Lite. I'm not sure what year it is, I was sold it as a 1995, but I'm not sure how to determine year with these. I'm nowhere near finished, I just put some parts from my stumpjumper on for a start.............

Comments and advice welcome, I'm not totally sure where to go with this one, it will defo be a rider though, so nothing too bling! The Judy's are original by the way, with their bontrager crown..... I don't like the red with the orange of the frame though, I would love to get my hands o some Judy FSX and fit the lowers to the bonty crown and stanchions.

Here is a current spec. sheet items in green are staying, red are going! Red items will be replaced with the items in brackets, orange ones i'm not sure about!....... plans may change though and i'm open to suggestions and constructive criticism!

Really nice buy there fella, and looking good already, looks like the stem is exactly the same after all :wink: These ride great...you seriously won't want to part with it in a hurry! As far as the age is concerned around '95 sounds about right looking at the dropouts, seatstays and cable guides but I'm sure the bontrager anoraks will confirm. If the stem is original to the frame it should be dated as well on the quill...

Thanks mate, the forks are first priority, everything else can wait til I find/can afford to change them. I may just get some standard Rock Shox decals for now, the red and orange does clash a bit though eh?!
