    another Control Tech Team Issue build

    I picked up my third CT bike recently and have started the build. I'm trying to use only correct era parts to make it more 'authentic'. I'm currently researching and trying to locate the correct year Lawwill Leader fork that CT would have made at this time. I would've liked to use the Girvin Vector that is shown in the picture, but in order to use it, I'd have to replace the elastomers with an air shock of some sort. For now it looks cool together.
    Parts so far-
    CT stem
    CT V-brakes
    CT Seatpost
    Fox Alps 5r rear shock- Cane Creek in picture.
    1996 unnamed/unknown handlebar
    Ti bar ends
    Ringle water bottle cage
    Cook Bros F- series cranks
    correct year XT controls and derailleurs- XTR 900 controls in picture.
    Still trying to find an older CK headset, skewers, bottom bracket, seat binder.

    The only advice I have for you is to get rid of the bar ends....PLEASE!
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Cornering the market on Control Techs. Be careful, three will lead to four.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    As far as I can tell, there are only 5 that may be available, I'm asking another person here about selling theirs and I've only seen 1 more. I was told that there were less than 100 made, so I doubt I'm cornering the market if there are at least 75 more out there somewhere. Besides, I like to ride them. Can't hurt to have extra parts...

    I'm having difficulty locating a correct era fork for this bike. According to posts on other forums, it might have been a Lawwill Leader 3 fork or even the Judy DH form that came out in 97. Either one is proving to be difficult in locating.
    Another issue is finding all black or silver components. I'm considering not using shimao stuff except for bearings and derailleurs to reflect the possibility that the dealer could've customized a bike like this with custom parts of 1997.
    Cook Bros. skewers, Cook Bros. cranks, Cook Bros. chainrings are all period correct.
    Haven't decided on hubset- maybe some Ringles. Also trying to find a pair of Ritchey Vantage Comp wheels.

    Or keep the bar ends and ditch the riser bars. One or the other, but never both. :P

    I believe I have one of those Judys sitting in my garage :-)....among other things.

    This is not a solicitation or offer to sell such merchandise. Just like to tease.

    Why not just buy fresh elastomers from this shop?
