nope I am afraid

make is not that exclusive :wink:

and colour could give it away :idea:

that's where you see the pros :wink:

but I believe vintage is different 8)
not at home yet so still vendors picture but I believe its a 95
haven't seen any around here ( only earlier ones)

unfortunately lacks the original rigid fork :?
if someone has one lying around :wink:

needs some tidying up. back towards M900 and M910
will go back to cantis so the canti "ayatollahs" won't get mad at me :lol: ( probably onza HO pretty close to the original avids but with avid ultimate levers)
sad to have missed the XTR M900 triggers sold this week by saltyman :cry:
Tricky to go back to original wheels ( Z21 on special Hugis or white industry - apparently could vary) so 217 on M910 will probably be the way
and possibly a nice flite evo 8)

You're probably right and I'm wrong as I now think that the 92 was burgundy in colour. Lovely bikes, one of the 90s bikes I lusted after! Very nice!

more 94 era. dark green, burgandy fade, grey as above & red I believe was the s-works steel colour sequence over the years in the UK (2tone green was available in the US)
