Here is the build thread for the Rocky Mountain Vertex 1992.

First a catalog build (XT, etc.) was planned, but now I want to try a build with Suntour XC Pro parts.
Some parts i've already found.

The paint and the weight blew me away.

Criticism and tips from you are of course very welcome !!

Here are first pictures:

8) glad this ended up on here!

I was the one bidding against you, sorry. I have one too and the parts i am missing were with this bike, also the frame was in better condition than mine.

Very rare bike and look forward to seeing it built :)

Yes the condition is very good but its more rare as it was only made for one year!

Added a pic of my frame, still waiting to source a few parts.
