    Work in progress. The wheelset is for display only ...



    Odyssey Vapor Stem with matching handlebars. Mhm ... 3-finger or 4-finger levers? Not sure yet ...



    XT seatpost matches perfect and the rare Turbo Gel is looking good as well.



    Not sure about the rims. Shiny Araya RM-17 or matte Wolber AT-18? Black American Classic hubs and silver spokes are waiting for the wheelset build ...

    Wow. That turned out great. The ebay seller that has the NOS frames and parts is Gokrip. Look for his seller id. He has NOS xt posts, U-brakes, pedals, hubs, etc. He has not listed anything in a while so I am not sure what his plans are. He had said he may have the frames painted by CycleArt and build them himself.

    Nice!
    Is the fork steel or aluminum?
    Like the 600 rear derailleur. Ritchey style.

    Wow. You did that up right! Very tastefully done, one of the most visually appealing bikes I have seen in a while. You got all the parts right. Nice durable low maintenance stuff all around. I especially like the wheels and the levers.

    Nice job!

    How's it ride? As stiff as it looks?

    Never heard of it, a bit before my time... Thanks for educating me. Very smooth look. Love the old XT stuff, and the medium-profile cantis look sharp, esp. with the Mathausers. Everything on that bike looks right, a no-compromise build.
