Thanks for all the positive comments, yeah I’m itching to get out to my workshop and build this up, should be able to make a good start over the weekend.
Might need some guidance with component selection as I have a varied collection of bits and can’t decide what’s going on this one..
Cheers for the above, liked the thread you linked - he changed the spec on that a few times didn’t he?
I’m confident the frame is a 1998 but there’s so little in terms of decal details that I could find.. I sent what I could over to Gil M (including the catalogue photo you put up) and he put together what you see on my frame.
So, it’s not going to be 100% original, but I’ll be happy with close to as poss. I have either steel rigid forks or the choice of a couple of 80mm sus. forks. I’m not going to stress too much about tracking down some of those obsys forks - bet they’re like hens teeth.
I have XT and XTR parts to go on and we’ll see how she takes shape..
Cheers as always for the advice and interest.
Just experimenting with forks, I have some rigid cr-mo in matching white, Marzocchi Z2 bam in chrome/blue and Z2 atom race in chrome/red.
The frame stickers have blue and some red too..
What’s everyone thinking?
