Barn find mountain bike for sale - Sold as spares/repairs with no returns.

The bike is a GT LTS 2000 DS and has been sat in a barn for the best part of 20 years.

Unfortunately the wheels are missing.

I have been told that the frame and forks are very rare and so I am asking £300.00 including UK delivery. Will post Worldwide at buyers expense.

Please PM me if interested, thanks!

I think you may have been misinformed a little. Perhaps with wheels and in better condition.

Come on, no need to dump on the guy. Let's keep it civil, hey?

But have to agree with the others I'm afraid, that will need a lot of love and unless there happens to be someone with a pining for that particular model it's nothing special so not likely to be a quick sell.

As above, maybe upto a ton if you clean it up and the bits that are left work.

Assume that's what you paid?

Good news is, your rear derailleur is worth about £15

If it was mine and I wanted to sell I’d strip it down and give it a really good clean, polish the frame paint and metal parts and access each part then rebuild and stick her on eBay or one of the FaceBoook GT LTS pages, someone will see the potential build in her :)
