[quote="Shamus"]Maybe I can also show my GT.

If somebody can identify exact year I would be happy...90-92?
I`m original owner of this bike, but I dont remember year when I bought it.

Only rear rim and tyres has been changed. I also have orginal Tioga seatpost, only have to change it now.

Definitely a 1990 model. 91 and 92 shown in the pics below

I just rehabed the yellow 92. Put a new set of GT anatomical OE spec grips back on along with a NOS saddle and skinwall tires. I have an original rigid fork in transit for the 91 Team in Midnight Aurora and will putting skins on that as well so that they will both be back to original. I actually owned a '90 in the black widow color just like Shamus before I got my Xizang in '91. Rode the heck out of that one too.

Yup, as GM sys, 1990. 1991 got triple track forks with adjustable dropouts, a flip-flop nd a triple nut headset. 1991 got XTR and a big price hike. Still, one of the nicest tingiest tange prestige tubests I've ridden. Compliance of hyper-thin steel, with unrivalled back end stiffness. Just doon't chainsuck or you'll go right through the paper thin chainstays ;)
lovely m/c

If you ever decide to sell the 91 Team – Pleeeeeeease let me know. I've been after one of these for soooo long

It's got a double seated brother in the same color too....Quatrefoil Tandem. They look great together.
