Dirt Disciple
This one won’t appeal to the purists but an old frame and some more modern parts is a hell of a combination.

The original bike as I bought it is below. The frame was is good nick but most of the rest of it was knackered. The wheels were munted, the fork was rigid, drivetrain was on its last legs…
