    Holy Moly!

    Did you keep it in a closet? That thing is pristine. I mean, my 97 S-6 has no stickers left and several scrathes in the clear coat. Where did you find this gem? Keep the updates coming. BTW, that is a fine shock. Do you have the mounting hardware?

    I keep in the closet the complete set of 2000 bike (frame + swin-arm) while I was serching for a new 1999 frame, because the 99 frame were build by Yeti and the 2000 comes from Taiwan aswell I prefer the 2000 swing-arm that gives more progressivity to te pullshock. I found the frame in ebay, and it's NOS!!

    About the mounting, I need a couple of things more, and now I'm going to move to London, from Spain, and will be not easy to complete it, but I've thought:

    Fork: Dorado
    Cranks: Cook Bros Racing
    Handlebar: Answer Pro-Taper
    Pedals: Speedplay Frog
    Derailleur: XTR
    Hubs: Front: DT,Rear EDCO
    Rims: Mavic 321
    Seatpost: I'm not sure, but somethig of titanium or carbon
    Seat: May be a Schwinn Sting-ray or Flite
    Headset: Chris King
    Grips: Odi Yeti
    Brakes: Front Hope M$, rear: Hayes G1
    Shifter: XTR

    Do you thing is ok? any changes?
