Hey folks, my virgin post!
Because of all the fantastic work going on here, I decided to pull out my 96 Lava Dome from the shed. Now this is actually my brothers old bike, I had a 96 Lava Dome in 'Burnt Orange' which I thought a nicer colour (still do), but sadly I sold it in around 98 for a Dawes XT.
I've got more or less all the original parts with the exception of the headset. I have the curve brakes and levers, stem and seat post, STX crank and front mech and an LX rear mech. I also have the original wheels, but sadly the scratch and sniff tyres are long gone. Can anybody tell me what size headset would be required for the P2's or what suspension forks would be suitable, possibly the old Judy SL's?
So attached below are a small collection of pictures of the Lava Dome and to be honest I'm just not sure what to do with it. Break it up and sell it for spares or build it up and use it as a rigid/hardtail?
The pictures below show a set of old LX levers and a club roost bar, the bar I sold to my brother and was off my old Lava Dome and the levers he added at a later date. You can also see the grip shifters, bloody horrible things in my opinion.

Edit: Changed the thread to say a 96 Lava Dome, rather than a 97 model as I originally thought it was.
