hi all so I have a new purchase it is i believe a 1992-1993 fire mountain but fell free to correct me if incorrect it was built in June this year but turned out to be too small for the customer and I came across it on flea bay it has some choice items on it like the forks for a start and the downhill bars and stem the forks I will keep as after riding the bike they are great I have some new parts added already like the NOS kalloy uno bars and stem and the panaracer smoke and dart re-issue tyres i have some xt brake levers to go on and will hunt for some xt v brakes the drive chain is stxrc and is all in great condition al apart from the questionable chain set which will have to go and exchanged for a shimano fc-751 xt chain set and bb
