Just got this for Xmas! I am pretty certain it is a Hawk Hill from 99ish.
It doesn't have the original RST forks as they were absolutely shot so I fitted these SR Suntour that I had laying around.
I am not sure what to do with it, I am thinking about having some fun with colours and possibly upgrading the gears with some LX kit I have in my parts bin. Anyone got any ideas or advice?

Polish and candy gloss!
Don't listen to me, my ideas usually waste a lot of time...

I was thinking something similar. I recently stripped and started polishing a 93 IFT. I also got a 97 Mount Vision for Xmas, it will also need stripping and polishing. They say practice makes perfect.
 
Next 3 projects after I finish the 93 IFT.
The 99ish Hawk hill has had its laquer removed, there is also a 93 Nail Trail and a 97 Mount Vision in there as well.

The Nail Trail will have a Manitou Mach 5 SX fork fitted, Deore LX gears and Tektro CR720 breaks.

The Mount Vision will have it's original Manitou Bulge front fork, fox vanilla rear shock with kore stem, handlebars and seat. Whyte industries crank and XT M739 gears and breaks.

I reckon I will be sick of polishing by the summer.

I’m currently working on this very tired 90 palisades. Does anymore know if these cable feed wheels on the stem are meant to rotate? Not sure if they’re fixed or it’s seized IMG_5557.jpeg !
