I remembered to take a camera out today and took some pics. Bought the seat post new in the 90s and never used it until last year on this build :lol: Got the frame 4 or 5 years ago. Health kept putting a damper on any plans but I finally had it build up last summer :) This is the current guise and probably how I will keep it for now.

There's a bikes worth of bling!

How are you finding the forks? They look good on the bike.

Hi Nick, forks are great, thanks :) but I think the seals in one leg are going. Slight weep going on.

That's not so good, I didn't see that when I was riding them, sorry. Are they easily replaceable do you know?

Looks fairly straight forward, just need to find a good price on the spares.

Really tidy. Some bling parts on their but very understated. I love old GT's.

Good frame fork combo

That's such a nice build, looking a little too clean though!
