Super, love it :).

P.s. I think some white Shimano M520 pedals would suit it a treat.

:D Awesome! one of my school mates had one just like it, got stolen in the first month...........sorely missed.
was this an eBay score?

Love the paint jobs on the early 90's steel/cromo gt's, classic.

Thanks for the comments...

Will keep with the M737 as they are close to being period correct (do like the idea of white pedals) otherwise I have a couple of XT platforms that could go on.....

No other plans with this one....Maybe change the rims/hubs so they are both the same.
