Reduced price to £150 & will courier to mainland UK address for £22.95

For sale is my pride and joy of many a year, a 1991 GT Karakoram with lots of modifications, all of which are 90s vintage parts. I bought it new in 1991 from Mountain High in Rickmansworth (long since closed) after saving up for ages!

I used this bike a lot back in the day but it has been pretty much unused for a lot of years now so hence I'm putting it up for sale. So many memories attached to it, I feel bad selling it!

There a number of scratches and paint flecks consistent with being well used, the inevitable chain suck being the worse culprit which I touched up with some white paint that doesn't look out of place with the fleck paintjob.
I've tried to show the imperfections with the photos.

The flite has seen better days to be honest! but everything is in working condition, the full spec is as follows

Frame: Tange CroMo 18" (BB to middle of top tube/seat tube)
Forks: Kona Project 2
Stem: Zoom
Bars: X-Lite 540 Pro Titanium
Bar Ends: Onza
S/post: Original GT
Headset: Original GT
Chainset: Deore LX Cranks with outer and middle gold PACE rings (48-36-24)
Front Mech: Deore LX
Rear Mech: Deore XT
Shifters: Deore XT Thumbshifters - 7 speed
Front Wheel: Deore LX hub, Mavic M231 CD rim
Rear Wheel: Deore DX hub, Mavic M231 CD rim
Brake Levers: Shimano SLR
Cantis: Shimano LX
U-Brake: Shimano
Tyres: Front, Ritchey Megabite; Rear, Specialized Crossroads Armadillo (the only non-retro part!)
Saddle: Flite Titanium
Pedals: Original GT flats
Accessories: Shark Fin, Bottle cage

I'm asking NOW £150 WAS £175 for it, I'd prefer buyer collection (I'm in Watford) but will now courier to mainland UK address for £22.95. I hope someone on here has a home for it as it would be a same to strip it for parts and Ebay them. Not sure I could do it to her..... :o). Any questions about it please ask away.
