    Here's what Bikepedia says it had when new.

    It's a regular 1 1/8" threadless fork, like most still in use. So headset, fork, stem etc are all easy to source for that bike.

    It just depends how far you want to go with upgrading - for example going from the 7spd setup to 8spd or 9spd can be expensive as you need new cogs, shifters, perhaps rear hub and wheel build, maybe derailleurs etc.

    Same goes for brakes if you want to go from V's to discs - gets a bit expensive.

    But a simple fork upgrade is easy enough, and you should be able to find a rear shock of the correct length if need be too.
