Picked up this on the weekend at an op shop for $20 Australian.....

As you can see needs a bit of work.

This is my first GT Road Bike.....very excited to pick this one up as I have been keeping an eye out for a GT road bike for a while to join my stable of GT MTB's......

Now just need to source the following:

STI Levers
Rear Derailleur

good score , I love that colour . Is that rear hub a cassette ? how many cogs on it ? are the wheels 28/36 spokes ?

ps you also need pedals,cables ,a suitable chain and handle bar tape too

With that number hanger tab on the under side of the top tube it must have been a sponsored team bike at some point in it's life. I landed a similar GT Saturn Team frame this week. Is there a serial number on this one?

Love it! What a bargain, I would like to add one of these one day as well, just doing a GT MTB build, funny how you can become attached to a brand!

Very cool bike. I had the same frame - but it was missing the matching fork. Mine was same color, fillet brazed but with french Excel tubing. Fantastic score, great bike. One I actually regret selling! I remember it had a nice lively ride. Happy miles on it.

Thanks for the comments.....

So far no more progress....

Decided on Ultegra 600 to finish the build so still need Brake/Shifters and Rear Derailleur.

Have all the other parts needed....

Rear isn't a cassette and is 7 speed....

Serial no is - GTS 9602

Looks nice.

Why couldn't you get a bottom bracket? All you need is a 113mm square taper one for the 600 cranks. Here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sealed-BB-Bot ... 6673924ac4
