Bought as a 'fixer-upper' from here to sort out a mate with a bike.

But, it was too big so I find myself with a 'spare' - nice size for me!

Its quite nice, needs a weightloss plan (those tyres are awful).

But like I say, its a spare...

Looks great LGF but are you sure it isn't a 1992 model?

Is removing the water bottle mount screws considered a weight-loss program? :wink:

More like a quick way to wreck a frame from the inside out. Plug 'em!

Hi I have one of these in NZ.
Trying to date it.

Its is metallic green all over [coarse met & no pattern/drizzling] and has your style of graphics. TIMBERLINE in silver frnt tube. All GT Terra on top tube. TriGT triangle decal, 1000 tange decal. Uni crown solid forks.
Has exage crossover brakes [really odd ones], on the rear and cantilever on front.
Stem is green as frame with two pinch cap screws..I have seen other green ones with the graphics reversed in size. IE Timberline on the top tube really small and the 'All GT Terra' really big on the front tube.
No derailleurs on it[removed]. Chainwheel smallish looks exage or shimano.
Any ideas? If I keep searching I will find it I guess?( :

OK..the four green TL pics are my frame sold in New Zealand in the 1990s.
Pic 1 may be an aftermarket Shimano Chainwheel can anyone confirm or deny this?I will leave it as I like it.
Pic 3 is the Frame Number T 9205 on the LHS of the BBS. It may indicate it is 1992 but member gm[long number] is working graciously on this for me. There are two other rows/banks of numbers and alpha letters in rows on the RHS of the BBS. A034 and 0760...

Where can I locate 1990 - 1995 GT catalogs/brochures? You mention RB?
