Really nice. Looking forward to seeing the progress. I have the pink one but, like yours, it’s likely a mid year as the spec is from the previous year to the colour
Thanks!
I have everything ready now.
Just need to get some free time to assemble.
I see you've had a few Dales.
My renewed love for these is because my second MTB back in 1989 when I was in college was an SM500 that I purchased new.
Unfortunately that bike was stolen.

I love these bikes, I was narrowly outbid for one of these a few weeks back and it haunts me still :(
I think the most cost effective way is to buy a tatty one cheap with all the parts and restore it. Especially if you can paint yourself.
This one isn't costing me that much because I had most of the parts already as spares from my other SM600.

Just waiting for new axles.
The rear axle I have is bent and wobbles.
The front axle is the wrong size.
Frustration!
:(
