And no "You've missed a bit thre when polishing it!!!"

Any idea's as to which year it is? how do you tell its age as this serial number is not like a Zaskar's month/year/run number?

Its going to be on the bay soon, if anybody is interested?

Decals look 1994 ish. Best way to age it is to trawl through the catalogues.

The consensus on my one I sold recently on ebay (for £48.50) was that it was a '96. Note the different gusset by the headtube and also my serial number was under the BB not on the dropout:

Orange71 is that not a Zaskar? Flat GT logo on the back of the top tube?

Deffo, after 92. (canti mounts not U brake) and Pre '96. (they changed in 96 to the style Orange 71 had).

Going by the Decals (without checking the catalogues) I'd guess at '95, but it could be'94.
