Hi,

While packing in preparation of the move to a new house, I struck upon some of the bits I have been sourcing to built up this Zaskar frame that I got from GT Steve.

As my back could use a short break, I decided to hang some parts on the frame to see what that'd look like.

As you can see, not all bits are there yet and some were put on temporarily, just until I find the right parts (such as the ITM stem, which is hopefully going to be replaced by a black Cattlehead sometime soon...), but I think the contours are becoming visible 8) .

Now I also should have some Magura Racelines lying somewhere, just haven't bumped in to those yet, but that will happen soon, I think :) .

This project will probably be finished in the new home in a couple of weeks.

Have a nice weekend!

The Manitou's on that bike are boring, the rigid 3D even in the low position makes for faster steering. I traded my manitous off once I rode the rigid's on my 92 Zaskar.

Thanks for sharing.

Any pics of that 92 Zaskar?

What sort of Manitous are they, they'd look the biz on my blue themed Zaskar.

Here's a small update.

Still in doubt whether to replace or even change the decals for a set of older ones (black/white lettering).

Once I get some air into the Mag, I'll take her out for a serious spin :)!
