Its with great sadness that i have to sell this on but needs must ...Its a 1996 Ink Blue Zaskar in 18 " , GT only sold these in 95/96 and to find one in this condition that has not been trashed or abused is pretty rare imho ....the frame has lost none of its original shine and has NO gourges , big scratchs , cracks or chainsuck .
I would like to sell this as a whole bike but realize i might have to end up parting this out .
I have put on a couple of pics here but heaps more can be found here on my photobucket ...
Mostly all the parts are NOS and are in stunning condition ..Wheels are GT Hadley hubs in Red laced to NOS Sun o lite rims with double butted spokes , Red nipples and handbuilt by Retrobikes very own Cannondale King ...
Rigid forks have recently been re finshed and re deacaled and yes these are the real GT Cr-Mo forks with GT stamped on the drop outs ...
Drivetrain is all XT apart from the Middleburn RS2 chainset that looks like new ....XT V brakes take care of stopping dutys .
Bars are GT own make linked with a Kore Stem and a WTB headset and its finished off with a Titec Beserker Saddle .
