Great to see a thread up and running + this beaut getting some attention. It really is a belter and was wasted sitting in my garage.

My plan was to build it with 1989 Deore to match the U brake and I even got as far as buying a donor Trekker. Problem was that even though the donor was tidy, it wasn't mint so the parts would have looked out of place on such a lovely frame.

Looking forward to seeing how it turns out. 8) 8) 8)

I can't enter it into anything without putting my mark on it and it might take a while. Wouldn't be right.

It would be good to make it 1989 spec but I'm not too concerned about mint stuff as I want to use it.

Would it be terrible to put 1991 spec deore LX and DX kit on it? I can't believe I'm even asking as that would be terrible. Tempting though.

Problem is, I'm out of 1989 deore ii or xt equipment so it will end up costing me. Anybody got any bits they want to sell?

I'd leave it as it is rather than a 1991 LX/DX lash up.
