'96ish GT Backwoods from the project shed.
In nice original condition, yellow and blue flame effect scheme, this screams of my mid 90s youth.
21 inch Aluminium frame, cro-mo forks. Acera brakes, front hub. Alivio STI, crank, rear hub, front mech. STX rear mech. Mavic 238 rims. GT bars and grips, vetta saddle. WTB Velociraptor tyres. As far as I can tell nothing is missing (correct me if I'm wrong! )

Some minor scuffs and scrapes but I can't find any dings or cracks, would describe as good to very good condition overall. The only fault I can find is the LH shifter does not like shifting into 3 so i suspect something inside is either broken or disconnected. Oh, and the brakes squeak.

This looks to have had an easy life, tyre wear etc suggests it's done a couple of hundred miles tops.

I have not even cleaned it yet, its been sat like this while i did some other stuff and not got that far down my list yet. Truth is this is bigger than I wanted so I don't think it's quite what I'd like. I bought it believing it to be a smaller size, and it don't need and other big frame in my life. It would be shame to break this up as it is so original and complete.

£135 collected or delivered locally, £150 posted UK only.
