Hey, heres my GT LTS2000 project, I bought if off of Ebay for £200 but it has some quite nice parts on it and it also included a dint on the down tube too! (But ofcourse I wasn't told about that by the seller) Any how here she is.

Load of junk, I'll give you your £200 and take it off your hands :P :lol:


Seriously though you got a bargain there 8)

Are the pivots/bearings all good? If not, the Betd kits (although not cheap) really are worth the pennies.

haha cheers, you think I got a bargain or are you just messing because I'm not 100%? Its not too bad a guess but its had a hell of a paper round. Back end is tight so I dont think any thing needs done. Oh I've just washed it and there was a sea of mud came off her, also took the horrible stickers off (Blew my sisters hair dryer up in the process! haha)

Well i've been looking at getting disc brakes for mine and for some nice hopes (like you have there) and the adapter thingy for the back i'm looking at £100+... so £100 for frame, forks and the rest is a bargain 8)

Ah cool, was a bit worried really. cheers tho. Theres a seal gone on the forks so I'm thinking it maybe cheaper getting another set of forks instead of getting these serviced and repainted.
