Deary me I am actually on here to ask for advice and seem to be getting side tracked by these lovely GT's. Funny as the Manchester knock about bike is turning me on to these 90's MTB's

Anyway - Really crisp currently doing up (or trying to return to oem condition) a 1992 Pantera. With the original stem probably rusted in place. Wondering how you found working with the old stem - Not sure if it's relevant but would you have any advice on getting it off. (So I can work on the headset either new bearings or replacement.)

Some photos of the aluminium stopper/bolt now rattling around between base of the Orange stem and the bottom of the steerer tube.

Again not sure if this is an area of your expertise but am guessing it might be someones:

1) Guessing my bike would have had a Deore LX rear derailleur. Anyway know this for sure?
2) The front brakes are V Brakes which means they can't be original parts as I think these kicked off in about 1996. The rear break is an EXAGE mountain caliper brake.
3) I bought this bike along with two others and a load of bent wheels and old parts for £20 locally. I suspect the Araya silver aluminium rims with quick release are the most likely original wheelset.

It seems that the only stuff I can find online about the bike indicates Suntour components but then some people mention Euro spec was Shimano and I think a lot of the LX parts on the bike were original. Sorry to bump your thread!

Nevermindthebikeshop,
Take a look in the archive section of the site under manufacturers and pick Gt.
There is a 92 catologue in there with all the spec's you will need for your bike. :wink:

It's all good except the decals...they make it look like a discount store special. Need to be as close to original as possible. No yellow outside borders.
