This is a project that looks like it's going to be a jawdropper when done.

A few "constructive" points -

If you are going to ride this, you really don't want an alloy bolt holding your bars in place. Nobody used them at the time. Well nobody sensible anyway.

I don't know if you are going for "period correctness" (dunno if you're bothered about that)

- the Renthall bar is about 4 years later than the rest of the front combo.
My Sub-130 was one of the first and I bought it in 92.

- Also - the first chainrings pictured, without the "extruder groove" were more correct. The grooved stuff is about '94 onwards.

The Pace carbon front hub is even later

Way before Hope, Pace used to do very trad-looking hubs in the very early 90s - never seen any for sale used though.

Amen to that Andy, but by the looks of things you're not far off completion are you??

Isnt ALU bolts on the forks risky too?

Weight weeines on MTBR forums are afraid of running ALU-bolts on stems (some of them at least), should be a warning notice.
