I think my late 90s Rockhopper Project is back on, got a nice Nickel one that needs a clean of of surface rust spots and polish. Needs that work but It'll be somewhere between a light utility bike and retro XC trail bike. Might end up too cherished to commute or do shops on i bet...
Build is either 8 or 9 speed x ? and Triple Butted Project 2 rigid forks most likely or maybe a period suspension.

I've got a few nice new wheels and rims so was gonna save some for my Orange Prestige etc where I will be stricter on matching groupsets and totally period correctness etc,

what would you chose on this Rockhopper?
