Hey Retro-Friends. Some of you remember my buildup-threads of my 96 Zaskar an my 91 Cyclone.

Unfortunately my Zaskar has to go. Here the last pictures of that nice bike

I really liked my Zaskar. But there is something that I liked more, when I first saw and ridden it... here it is

So far...

The frame is from 1994. And I must say, it is in a very good condition. No dent, no chainsuck.

I planed to build the Xizang with XTR 900 components. Seatpost, handlebar and stem I take black CT-Parts.

If you have any tips let my know :-)

Really nice!
I like the black in contrast with the colour of the frame,I see you too have a control tech black bar,it's the small details that matter!!
