£240 ! It would have been worth it just for the components.
Really?...You'd pay L240 for a component kit of mostly LX and STX parts with a mid line elastomer bumper fork? You need to visit me then. I've got about L3000 in the same kit I'd love to send you home with.
Just another 1997 model year bike wearing available 96 model year decals. Imagine that.... the spec on this bike is 95% the same as a 1997 Avalanche. Like someone would really buy a Zaskar frame and build it up to match an Avalanche. Highly doubtful. It'd be much cheaper to buy an Avalanche and a 25 dollar decal set. You'd wind up with this anyway and save big money over a real Zaskar.
