1st time HG owner

Hi guys, Aquired a '99 Factory Team this past fall. It had been converted to a SS and the guy didn't have the original deraileurs, crankset, etc. but the frame is beautiful and the parts he used to upgrade it are very nice, so it's an excellent riding bike, but I also appreciate authenticity, so I'm on the hunt for the orig. XTR M950 deraileurs and shifters. At the least just the rear; I'm kinda liking the single chainring setup on the front for the riding ease and higher BB clearance. Shoot me a line if you've got an old rear XTR and shifter for sale. Oh, and a front XTR hub skewer! Thanks guys.

Eh, I like 'em big... I MAY have the skewer but it is buried if I do, and I'm not sure how soon I'll get to it. I'll try to keep it in mind for the weekend though.

I've ordered a proper RD and shifter/brake lever set. Just needing the skewer now. Thx.

Beautiful and in great condition! How's it working out as an SS?
