In a quest to complete the older Avalacnhes I hammered this one out of the past two nights. 1991 GT Avalanche in Daktari White. Have had this frame hanging in the basement for almost two years, it's an eBay pick-up that was $45 for stem, fork and frame. Had most all the original parts aside from XT upgrades on the derailleurs in inventory. Somewhere in a box is that elusive painted to match stem....you know how it goes...just can't seem to find it at the moment. Enjoy


I remember watching that auction . The selling price is why I decided to not list my 90 Avalanche. Any chance you have a rigid GT fork that will fit a 20" Avalanche? I want to start riding this bike. I believe the Scott Unishock it came with has a 195mm steerer. BTW your GT collection is awesome!
