Thought I would share some pics of the '91 Zaskar I've been working on.

I got this locally through eBay and have done a fair bit of work on it - mainly on the frame TBH. I've tried to use as much of the original parts from the bike as possible, but have replaced some wear parts -the BB, headset, chain, cassette etc.

As bought:

Thanks for the kind words, folks.

Weeman & Ant - yes I'm still giving this to my dad. His birthday is this Friday coming. Really hope he likes it !

The irony is...... this thing is WAY nicer than any bike I've ever had myself :mrgreen:
