Good to see you back GM.

Time for another small update, this time. . . . .

Seating

I spent an age trawling the internet knowing there were still shops out there selling old Tioga stuff and was lucky enough to find this in the states,

I kept the Flite karma'd me by gtsteve last year after waving off the Riddler and a Flite always looks good. I did bid on an early GT leather one recently but it went higher than I wanted to pay for what was essentially period correctness!


A couple of pics to show how it is coming along . . . . . .

I know the seatpost is too high but I dont want to scratch it before I know which height to use :lol:

Thats like the one I bid on mate (well silver rivets) with GT All Terra on the nose.

It went for near £45 and I just didnt have the cash. If one pops up at a reasonable price I will jump on it 8)

the fabrication of the clamp on your tioga seatpost is near identical to the GT cro mo flip flop stems of the 1993 ish era!

Great build! And very good pics, too!

I don't see why I have "taken ownership" of the pics I postet; I footnoted the owners of the pics.

I really like how this is looking. Really good build, I like the use of the Tioga parts and I'm looking forward to seeing it completed.

That's looking really nice, can't wait to see it done. You just know that it'll ride brilliantly.
