There is a lot of work to do, but I'm really happy, the GT RTS was one of my dream bikes and now I have 3! :mrgreen: It's hard to find some of the components (sometimes the distance is a problem and I can't get international shipping to my country) but I have almost everything I need and a lot of patience... the most important thing in this!

Saludos!

PS: Sorry for my english... :oops:

Hi there, I am new to this site, was hoping for some advice if possible.
I have a purple GT RTS 3 and was thinking of selling it. Was wondering what I should be looking to get for it?

Sorry to be a pain!

Do they all have flat end caps?

What do you mean by flat end caps? Does it make a difference to the value?

The ones made in the usa (rts team & rts1) models are made from 6061 aluminium and they have the same end cap as the usa made gt zaskar's

The others were made in the Far East and have a different type of end cap,as well as being made from 7005 aluminium they will have a different serial number with letters at the start then numbers after.
The usa made ones have just numbers on them.
