Picked up this frame last January when it was listed on craigslist in So. California. Frame had been previously built and has a few nicks but no chainsuck scars. In June a search on eBay turned up a NOS Team Scream fork that by decal was originally from a 93 Bravado LE. I had most of the parts except the cable hanger sitting on the shelf. I built up the wheels with a pair of NOS Mavic M230's with a pair of NOS M900 XTR hubs I found at a bike shop a year or so back. Tires are NOS Smoke and Dart. Crank is NOS GT with XTR rings. Enjoy.

Only thing nicer then what you've got there would be if it were a bit bigger and hence in my size!

I have a question - do you know who made the cranks for GT?

Nice one you made here. Usually I cant comment on your GT's but in this case I think the seat and seatpost don't match the bike.

If changed to a setapost with (smaller or no-logo) and clean seat it would be very nice!

Twas thinking the same thing. As busy looking as the Team Scream paint scheme is the simpler the rest is the cleaner and neater the look. Knew this comment was coming. Thanks

Very pleasantly surprised by this... 8) 8)

Most of the TS colorways I've seen before are predominantly blue with yellow, so really nice to see it the other way round....

Lovely build.. 8)

I'd say they're all about 50/50. The higher end Psyclones and Bravados were done with blue back ends and yellow fronts. The lower end Timberlines and Teguesta's were done the opposite
