    thrift store find: scott tampico/rst 381 needs tlc...lots!

    grabbed it for $15! based on brief googling, i'd say it's mid 90's model....though what i've seen on the web has the seat stay canti bridge. this one has a cable tube along the top tube/seat tube junction. otherwise, it looks like this one:

    my acquisition comes with some standard fair for the day, but some nice lx linears seem to be an add on. plus, some gangly acera shifters i'll replace.

    one nice/fun feature is the scott at3 bar in silver. yum!

    it's in good shape save needing consumables 'cept tires and tubes. however, the rst 381 is shot...dead...kaput. is it rebuildable? i do see replacement bushings for $54. but, i read an mtbr thread wherein the fellow had issues and apparently couldn't fix it. not sure since the thread abruptly ended after just a few posts. not much other info on the fork i'm seeing
