The GT fetish is still not over

That is nice Dave, must admit I am slightly gutted to have missed it :(

It needs a slightly smaller saddle I think, something like a Vetta TT Trishock. There are some NOS ones on Ebay for £5 :wink:

Otherwise, lovely.

Look into my eyes, not around the eyes, into my eyes..........

You need to sell that to me. Oh Yes sell to me, sell to me sell to me, sell to me.............

Very nice bike, not too sure on the spins though. Been looking for a mint Lightning for ages. Classy GT Bike not like the new over size tubing models.

Oh for the days of Xizangs , Psyclones, Lightnings and Bravados. Ti and Reynolds tubing, Classic biking at it's best :lol:
