I am in the process of looking for a cool, huge (23"+) classic MTB project. Looking for completes or frames. I currently have a Fat Chance and fillet Ritchey so think along those lines. Anyone got something collecting dust that they'd like to move on?
I have a pristine Nishiki Ariel frame/fork/headset in black with blue/pink splatter. 23"ish size (it's got a lot of head tube).
Also have a 1991 GT Zaskar frameset. 23" top tube, 22.5" c-top seat tube, 20.5" c-c- seat tube. This is ball burnished aluminum, U-brake rear. Fork is black steel with the 3-position dropouts on it. Canti bosses. 1-1/8" threaded headset. This frame is NOT pristine in finish -no dents cracks or dings, but the finish is oxidized, some decals are peeling, really needs some love. Made in the USA (to my understanding falt end cap, 6061 made in usa decal, SN# 05912293). Were these ever offered in a larger size? Seems like the 18 or 19" or whatever is much more common.
If either of these interest you I'll get better pics and/or measurements as you like.
