It's a work in progress, but i've got it rideable now.

Retro highlights...

Pro-circuit forks. (bought on here)
The original XT STI units and rear mech.
Original LX front mech. All working very well too.
Original Orange bar-ends

X-Lite skewers
Answer Taperlite bar.
I-Baeam stem.
Silly colour Middleburn Chainrings
All 1995ish

Things to do...

Retro saddle (i just took the one from my road bike)
Proper, matched tyres, the current ones were just some random spares lying around.
Perhaps get rid of the silly colour items and replace with some more sensible retro gear.
The front brake is a cheap, modern effort, looks ok but i'll replace that eventually.

Any other suggestions?

Nice to see the forks plugged in now :wink: Suit the bike well.

If it were mine, I'd ditch the splash of anodizing and go plain. Also, swap the stem for a traditional style instead of the box section one.

Otherwise, looks good.

I'd deffo ditch the rings but, strangely, I quite like that stem :lol: .

Edit: On looking again, it looks a tad long...

Silver granny and middle ring with a black outer.

Black bottle cage.

Silver non-box section stem.

Black bar ends, pref stubbies.

Flite saddle.

Job done :wink:

If you want to replicate the genuine Pro-Circuit decals for the forks I can send you pics of them. I'd say some orange ones would look perfect to pick out the Orange P7 graphics.
