Been building this for the past few months.... the frame is a 91 Zaskar, purchased from someone who bought it in the US in 1997 from a friend who had the frame from new.... when I bought the bike it was fitted with 97 parts inc judy dh and all parts not suitable era for the frame. The bike hadn't been used in a long time and was basically in someones shed and was advertised as an old gt bike for sale...

Very nice, about to do similar with my 94. I have a full set of DX components off my Avalanche so rather than having a mis-match will build it up the Av has a paint resto.

Love that. I'd love to get hold of a '91 Zaskar if anyone is selling one.
