Been looking at lots of nice GT's on here, but BITD the one I had was the Blue Widow colour and I'm starting to think they must be quite rare now. Has anybody got a Karakoram from '91 that is a Blue Widow (alternate colour) and not Inferno in colour.
All I keep finding is '90's (with old font) or Elite's or the Inferno coloured.

Can somebody show me a pic of one of these beauties in all its glory?

Here's my 1991 Karakoram Elite.

The Karakoram Elite had a full DX groupset and the lovely 'Night Sky' paintjob.
Meanwhile the Karakoram had the 'Inferno' paint and a mixture of LX and DX.

EDIT: Just re-read your original post.
I see you're actually looking for the 'Blue Widow' paint job.
Must admit that despite my love for early 90's GTs, I've never seen one either.

Was Inferno the same design but orange instead of blue?

Yes similar pattern just different color. None of these were done with a stencil though. Each was it's own unique paint job

That's my bike, can I have it back now please :lol:

Seriously though, that was my first proper bike saved up for and bought myself. What a beauty cost me £350.
