It's the first of January 2011. It's time to start a build thread of the 1991 Gary Fisher Mt Tam.

I bought this frame off Kingroon in May 2009. Was planning to rebuild it and have been collecting parts since then! I just finished collecting the parts and now it's time to get the frame resprayed and service the forks. Gil made me some nice new decals and within a few weeks I will have the frame back from the spray-shop!

Most parts I have collected are NOS, others very minty! Got a new Nitto seatpost, NOS Fisher stem and bar and even NOS Fisher tires!! And of course NOS XT parts.

I will start of with a pic of the frame I got from Kingroon:

And how it is going to be......

Will post pics of all the parts soon!

Here are some pics of the parts I have been collecting!

Not sure what brakes to use: M732 or M734?? Both were used in 1991 and I don't know which ones were original on the Mt Tam. Does anybody know?

This is how it is at the moment. It's gone be resprayed in the next weeks!

Used BR-M732 brakes. They need a polish, but perhaps going to use my M734. Suggestions?

Nice gathering of bits for this build.

Regarding the brakes....in my lowly opinion, I like the look of the M732 better than the low profile.

Good luck with the build.

I could also upgrade! I have some BR-M900?!?!

M732 brakes.....still my choice. Matching XT stuff looks nice.

When are you expecting the repaint to be done? I want to see this nice project as it moves along.

Silver or black?

I have a few options for company's for painting it and hope to make a decision this week! Still not sure about the correct color :cry: :cry:

Very nice frame + parts! It's nice to see that people are so patient to search and collect parts for 1 or 2 years to compleet a build. I guess there's a learning curve for me in that :LOL:

off topic: is there one very enthousiastic Bart bidding on lots of retro parts on marktplaats.nl or is it a coincidence?

I really like the bike and pink decals as pictured in the original photo above. Would you do it like that or don't you like it?

I prefer classic silver brakes but as you can see on my Merlin project I chose black because everything else was black. I would say it depends on the final colour of the frame and the other components.
