Just a word of caution - make sure it's definitely a zaskar. Rebadges of lower models are pretty common.

Another good point. Flat end cap on top tube and 6061 on drop outs for a real Zaskar

That's not a Zaskar. It's got a rounded end cap. If you've not bought it yet. Ask the seller for the serial number should be on the dropouts and post it on here. We'll tell you what it is. Also there should be 6061 stamped on the dropouts too. If not it's likely to be an Avalanche.

If I'm not mistaken it has the twin bolt mech hanger.
It's not a Zaskar or a Pantera (no flat end cap).
So it's got to be a 93-95 alloy model (Avalanche, Backwoods, Arrowhead, Tempest, Terramoto).

The brake levers are not designed for those brakes. The welding on that bar looks nasty too and the forks look cheap and clunky. Have a look in the for sale section on here. Or put up a wanted. Real Zaskar's aren't expensive. You'd be looking around maybe £50-70 for one.

Early Zaskars had twin bolt hangers :-)
91 or something like that.

But it's still not a real McCoy, find another one!

Get some pictures of the inside of the drop outs if you can.
