Nice Zaskar - that frame from gm' is a beauty - love the 92 with the red decals - my favourite Zaskar.

Liking the control tech stuff too - I've gone that route on my Xizang and it looks great.

As for the cranks I don't think the pedals are offset - its just an illusion - look great al the same.

Credits to Gil_M on the decals. I worked with Gil trading emails and measurements for a few weeks last winter dialing 91-93 Zaskar decals. Hopefully he gets caught up so we can work on the next round.
