Hello all, this is my first retro rebuild project I thought I'd share.
I'm rebuilding a 1997 Rockhopper back to close to original spec. Picked it up on eBay 2 years ago to get back into cycling following several years of poor health. My previous bike was an Orange Clockwork LX 1993 or 1994, insurance replacement for a stolen Kona Lava Dome. The Orange is since long gone, had an argument with a car and lost
It's nowhere near as amazing as some of the builds on here but it is being fun to do nonetheless!
It started life nearly like this :
except mine has a 73mm BB shell, 11-28T Hyperglide C cassette (original?), and a Ritchey Logic headset (original?).
Also when I purchased it, the BB had been replaced with a UN72 and the tyres weren't the originals.
Pics to follow.
