Love me some resto mod.

Don't get me wrong, period correct is great. But a huge part of mountain bike ownership is upgrading. As long as it makes sense.

Here's my 95 Bianchi,

Period correct:
Original Paul love levers,
Critical Racing Canti's,
1st year production Marzocchi Z2


Not correct:
CK disc hubs (left over from a previous bike) on funky laced Mavics.
XO 9 speed rear D & shifters (They are amazing)
SRAM 990 9 speed cassette because red spider
Raceface Next LP cranks, came with the bike when I bought it
Thomson post, can't find a layback ti post in 26.8
Moots ti stem, because ti
White Bros riser bar because ti
Bike bell, because ti, & safety
WTB Volt team 142mm, most comfy saddle ever
VP pedals, flats are the thang.
