It’s definitely old. The homologation date is ’99 so at least 18 years. I really don’t plan on being competitive, but it is already clear that finding ‘vintage’ parts may be a bit of a challenge.

The brakes don’t work well. I was actually planning on bleeding the brakes tonight, but valve on the included gravity bleeder won’t allow it to thread onto the master cylinder. Is it possible that it’s supposed to be reverse-bled?

I do plan to do a fairly intensive rebuild. I will obviously be looking for abnormal cracks and wear, but it’ll definitely be a learning experience. Any tips or information would certainly be appreciated.
