An other children dream... :D :D :D


Who doesn't know the Mythic GT Zaskar LE ?

After building my first RetroBike, a beautifull GT STS 1000 DS from 1998 (viewtopic.php?f=21&t=352551), I've decided to start a second one.

Of course, as I'am a GT lover, it will be only a GT bike :lol: :lol: :lol:


After searching and searching, I found a GT Zaskar LE from 1994 (thanks Kevin). With some elbow grease and time, the frame is shining again :

But frame and components are not matching the correct period... So I've decided to find a recent one and find a MY1999 in Team color (thanks Jon) !

Image

Cosmetically not in perfect condition, but the perfect frame for a 1999 100% build !

So, it's time to swap...
