I finally got around to picking up one of these but if there's anyone here old enough to remember them or have owned one, I'd really appreciate some advice as I have a lot of questions... I know this is a long shot!
The aim is to build it up as faithfully as possible to Martyn's old spec, although finding a lot of that stuff seems impossible now...
I'm searching for a Fatty R fork but keep getting messed about on eBay. Any idea what length steerer it'll need? If one does surface, I'll probably have to spray it. I've seen Volvo 124 suggested as the colour unless anyone knows otherwise?
In the short term, some parts might have to be borrowed from a newer bike but I'm not sure if a wide rear wheel (trialtech/no holes) would fit AND work with a HS33 on evo mounts?
I have some singlespeed bits to get it up and running but want to run a small cassette & road/short cage mech - I've no idea here but it'll need it to work with a 9sp hub/shifter.
Yellow (FSA or any brand) headsets don't seem to exist anymore (they're all anodised/gold) and fatty forks seem scarce too, let alone if I need wheels etc. ARGH
One last thing - this measures 14" but my memory of them when they came out was of only being available in one, larger size. Just wondered if anyone could shed some light on this.
Any help is really appreciated - especially in terms of sourcing parts!
