Nice! 8)

Are those the original wheels - grey anodised Araya RX-7 I think?

No they are mid 90s wheels unfortunately, I built this from frame up so nothing is original. Most is period correct though. My 91 and 92 Karakorams both have the correct Araya CV7 rims.

very nice bike Image last year i used to build up such a frame set for an old friend of mine – pretty paint job. i chose a long lasting dx/xt mix. he loves is and the ride is stiff all over... by now it has the 1990 riveted gt saddle and pedal cages with gt straps.
