Just bought a 1992 GT Mini Mach One frame + forks for my 6 yr old son it cost me £40 and has never been built up. The frame, forks, chrome and decals are in mint condition and looks as if it was made yesterday.

I was hoping that someone could give me some history / info on the frame and build spec and maybe confirm my measured dimensions if not possibly refer me to a relavant source.

Frame Serial No. 08921577
The seller stated that the wheels size is 18" but it looks more like 20" ?
The rims / tyres 1.1/8 or 1.3/8 ?
The rear drop out is 10mm but the front drop out seems to be 8mm ?
The seat clamp seems to be 22mm in size ? and the seat post looks to be 20mm ?
The stem shaft seems to be 20mm ?
The decals are of 4130 cro-mo, Made in USA, GT wings - Huntington Beach CA and Rider Limit do not exceed 75 pounds.

comments / advice on the build and sourcing of parts most welcome.

Thanks
