Brother in law gave me this frame yesterday. I would like to build it up but don't even know where to start. Modern full rigid probably. Even thought about making a gravel bike. Suggestions on parts to buy??

Try looking at the archive for inspiration: HERE. How you build it will depend on intended use: if you want a collector's piece, go original; if you just want a nice bike to ride, go heretic and build it however you like.

Thanks guys! I just don't know know what fits and my head gets spinning reading through thus parts lost. I want a nice little adventure bike. I have an 87 Schwinn prelude for the road, a 2020 stumpjumper for the chunky stuff and want this to ride gravel and fire roads. I like what old shovel did with his "nostalgia" Kona build but won't be welding on disc mounts lol

Alrighty then. I parted it all out for just under $2000 USD. All seems pretty strait forward. Going 1x11 Shimano. V-brakes front and rear. The fork? Well, I bought this one. Little worried it might rake it out too much but we'll see on Sunday!
