It was end of 2011 when my friend Ryan's eye fell on this 'for sale' thread.
He sent me an email with the idea to get this steel beauty alive again and build it as a 'together' project.
Sounded good to me! 8)
So, after a small email session with RB forum member 'Martin', we decided to pick up this frame and forks.
The frame is a 1992 GT Psyclone, 20" out of True Temper GTX Ultra-III fillet brazed chromoly.


viewtopic.php?f=2&t=171449

Now, about a year after purchasing and hunting for parts, we have almost all bits.
It will be a mix of NOS, used and new (tires) parts, not all exact periode correct but the main goal is to have it on wheels functioning.
The wheels still have to be build. We don't have a deadline but the planning is to finish it end of spring, beginning of this summer.....

Here are some pictures:

So, as you can see we have to decide which headset, stem and brakelevers we are going to use.
The tires (no picture) will be Panaracer Smoke and Dart reissue skinwalls.

Thanks Dave, they appeared on the German eBay last year, the seller was the German importer (Sport Import) for GT in the 90's.
He told me that not more then 20 sets were sold in Germany..
