This frame was given to me by my brother (thanks bro!). Essentailly, its a swap over from my '95, as it was a 19 inch and slightly too small for me.

This is a really nice frame with a bit of patina, and original decals that are a sublime colour. It even still has the little warning sticker on it telling you to make sure you know how a quick release works.

It feels great to ride, stiff nimble and sprightly

Nice Zaskar! :D

Any particular reason, why you did not use the Sycros post on the first picture which is time correct? The one now used is 1997+.

If you ever decide to let that GT Saddle with those screws go, please PM me. That would be lovely for my 92 Psyclone or a 91 Cyclone of my mate.

thanks rahbari, i am quite happy with this one, it rides really well and looks good. i am leaving it not polished,i like the fact its got a bit of age and wear about it.

yeah, i have that earlier seatpost on my 1992 Zaskar currently, so the newer one is on this bike.

its a great saddle, (brand new) but again given to me by my brother, i need to keep it with me sorry. they are quite hard to come by
