Hokay! So after 15 years I finally got an STS-DH. Its marked 07/97, disc only rear stays with built in IS mount (not bolt on). Very tidy condition, needs decals and the internal cable tubing refreshed but thats about it. Only has light rub on one crank arm, and the Super Deluxe works perfectly, so I suspect its done very little hard work.

Questions!

Gil_M for the decals to go on this one?

Wax furniture polish to get some shine back into the frame?

Are the lugs and links/stays meant to be satin silver or a polished finish?

Would anyone like to hazard a guess at how many STS' s there are in the UK?

I reckon there are hundreds of 1's and 2's, but how many STS lobos?

Did anyone used to work for the GT importer and have any official numbers?

I wonder how many DHs were made? My frame is numbered '0875' after the date code, but I was thinking they may have been numbered in series with whatever else was going through the works?

In 97 when I got my STS-2, Ceratti were absolutely desperate to get them into the shops. There was a dealer in Bristol who had been forced to take an STS-1, but who knew he could not sell it. He was told that unless he took an STS they would not supply him with any of the cheaper models, which was what he really wanted.

I got my STS through my LBS who were not a GT dealer, but who had an account with Ceratti for accessories. They phoned and asked if they could buy just one STS-2 and were told yes, without any issues. I think the local sales rep delivered it, as Ceratti were based just up the road in Almondsbury, Bristol.

I fancy there are more STS's out there, maybe still sitting in their delivery boxes in the stock rooms of old shops, just waiting to be discovered :wink:

Either that, or they all went back to the US with broken frames :shock:

Got the same STS lobo in very bad state (used for DH quite long by previous user).
I had it repolished, set up with fox air shock rear and White Bros front...

It rules now ! But it's a piece of museum now, so I don't ride it a lot ! :wink:

You can see photo of it AND history of GT STS on the link below :
