I'm trying not to think of the ramifications of having a '91 Karakoram Elite and a '92 Karakoram, given my completist nature .... but I might just double check how many different years it was made ...[/quote]

They must go past 98? whats the plans with this one then?

I stand corrected, also looking at the forks it's not the triple track so assuming the forks are stock it's no higher than a karakoram.

Bravado would have been nice! good luck with the build.

I'm not sure yet, it was an impulse buy really. I took it out for a ride last night, despite it needing a few nthings done and I'm still unsure about the size.

I might stick a different back tyre on (sidewall is wrecked) and fix the U-brake then take it off road to see whether I'm going to be happy riding it.

If I decide it's big enough I'll start thinking about new paint and probably replacing a few parts - maybe DX throughout?

Haha, thanks! But I have to buy them in order.

Hmm, I'm going to have to go back in time for those 1989 and 1990 purchases.

Actually, either of those would tempt me, I have to admit.
