After lots of yes' and no's finally build it.....:)

Frameset is completely pollished, decals are still the original and look ok. the frame is pefect, no scratches, dents or other damages.

Build up with the Shimano XT 730-735 group, Cook Bros cranks, Chris King headset and lastbut definately not least a Rock Shox Mag21.

Only thing is the seatpost, I'm looking for a nice black one with setback (shimano XT 27.0 f.e.)

That's kin lovely that is :)

You don't ride it with the seat that high do you? :lol:

Shame it's 27.0 as I have a 27.2 black kore elite that would finish that off a t.

thanks...

Yes I ride it with the seat that high, measured 85,5 cm center top seat....:)
Last year I've ridden a 18" Zaskar for a few months but sold that one, this is a 19"....

Indeed a Kore seatpost will also do good on this one...

85.5?? That's even more awesome than the bike.

As this is Retrobike, perhaps there should be a competition for the biggest difference between saddle height and handlebar height? This has to be one of the biggest I've ever seen.

Isn't it that the 1992 Zaskar LE was a "frame only"?

Have to find the catalogue myself tonight.......:(

I made this build up with parts left from the Attitude and some I still had in stock somewhere.
I think it fits nice and simple. just ballburnished/black and the logo-red...
