A long and boring story sits behind this bike, but basically my dad bought it off my cousin for me when i was 14, i rode it and loved it for a few years and kitted it out with some really nice stuff.
The drive-side chanstay snapped and i replaced the frame with a '98 Caldera and some chav promptly broke into my shed & took the lot....
So 10 years down the line I find this site and decide to restore.
It's taken me about a year to source all the bits. I'm still not finished as i've got an XT front mech on it's way to match the rear, some red bottle cage bolts and thinkin about green chainring bolts
Also a new seat clamp is in order now i think i've finally found a nice 29.8mm.
New drop-outs & paint by Bob Jackson.
Cheers to Gil_M for ace decals
Many thanks to all on here who supplied other bits!
Anyhow, pics speak louder than words. (please excuse the chainstay protectors, they'll be changed for a nicer one asap)
