Just picked this up for the wife, but I think it's a tad too big.
Not sure of the year???, or worth????. All shimano LX 563. mavic 230 rims, smoke, dart skinwalls
very little use, 18". I may sell whole or decide to split or ride it myself.
Any ideas on price to ask, not up to speed on the GT market values.
Anyone know the year, can't find one like this in the catalogues?
I've tried posting to the xyz how much is my stuff worth forum before, never getting a response
Cheers

OMG, that brings me back to 1994 when I picked up my Avalanche LE at my LBS after saving for months (years) 8) :

After spending almost all money I earned by working in a local restaurant, it looked like this, just before it got nicked :evil: :

I could provide you with an estimate of its value, but I'm probably biased :D .

Enjoy it!

Turns out to be too big for my wife :(
On with the hunt for a smaller bike again :cry:

Now I can't decide to leave intact or split, no room in the stable for another one for me
Tough one since it is all original except for seat and in exceptional nick
