Fork: RockShox Indy SL
Headset: Chris King No ThreadSet
Handlebar: Easton EA70
Stem: Ritchey WCS
Shifters: Shimano Deore XT (Mega 9 drive train)
Brake levers: Shimano Deore XT
Front and Rear Brakes: Shimano XTR (not disc brakes)
Front and Rear Derailleurs: Shimano XTR
Crankset: Shimano Deore XT Hollowtech
Seatpost: Shimano Deore XT
Saddle: Selle Italia Nitrox with Genuine Gel (Manganese rails)
Cassette: Shimano XT Mega 9 (9-speed)
Sprocket: Shimano XT
Wheels: Sun Rims Rhyno Lite 26" with Shimano Deore hubs

If you guys need a better description or pictures of a component, I'd be glad to add them. Thanks for the help.

Rockshox Indy SL? Was it NOS in 2003 when you built? I thought the Indy went bye-bye long ago.

all the parts were bought new. so im thinking it could be NOS
the bike itself is in about 8/10 condition, with 10 being brand new.

It is just a bike.

I did a little research (you could too, y'know - - google is your friend), even found one of your posts (nearly identical) on some other forum. Frames were made by Vuelta (the cranks and wheelsets people) using a decent tubeset (7005 Dedacciai). Sometime after their demise, the frames were being blown out by ediscount bike (well-known ebay bike parts liquidator) for the princely sum of $49.
