Funny you mention the decals. The seller claimed that the bike was his sons who was mustard on a bike and that this was a GT team bike, not shop bought.

Personnaly i thought that was bobbins as it has the 'don't ride until you've read the manual sticker on the top-tube :roll: . Still, it doesn't match the one in the '94 catalogue either...
