Hi i have always believed that a zaskar has a flat GT stamp on the back of the top tube and are all 6000 alloy? but this 1 was made around 2002! the seat clamp is part of the frame, but its 7000 alloy and the GT stamp is round STAMP PZ1503598 is on the bottom bot that dont mean much to me,, can any 1 shed a little light on this for me please, i would like to know what that stamp reads

I may be wrong as there were some exceptions to the rule. But to me i'd say that is a faux Zaskar.

The top tube end cap is curved where as on most years zasks it was flat.
Also I thought the frame number was supposed to be on the inside of a drop out not on the bb shell.

As I said, I may be wrong, I am no GT fan/library.

It's a 2000ish Zaskar. It was built after manufacture of the Zaskar was moved to Taiwan and they were made from 7000 series alloy rather than 6061.

So yes, it's a genuine Zaskar but not a particularly desirable one.

Welding will be as good as any other 7000 series alloy frame made anywhere in the world.
