Hadn't seen above !

My final offer 1988/89 Karakoram as I think the Avalanche only had one eyelet on rear dropout as far as I can see.

Looks like it could be a sexy '87/ 88 model GT.

Silly question .. does it actually say 'GT' on the endcap ?

Bit tricky with only 1 photo.

There are no markings to indicate GT,,,,,,,,,I just compared the shape of the frame. If not GT who else makes such a frame?

I concur. Anyone got a brochure? or some rocking horse poo?

I think with the rear brake cable treatment it has to be GT, i've never seen it on other triple triangle frames. The lug for the seatclamp area is what they did late 80's on a lot of conventional shape frames.

The group set is probably a red herring.


EDIT: This "supposed '88" Tequesta has the U Brake on the chainstay, GT embossed and angled cap:

It`s an old Simplon (austrian brand)

I'm pretty sure about it.
