It has too many deep scrathes and gouges in frame to leave be able to look good bare and polished, why i decided to paint it, still not sure on the color might change it to satin black

Out of interest what height are you? Massive difference between a 21 inch Avalanche and your GT Ruckus! Ruckus is more suited to jumping and messing around, you may find it hard work using it to cover larger distances...

Not so, not an LE, was no such bike in 1993.

It was the first yr the Avalanche was offered in aluminum and it was called the Avalanche AL. 93 was the last year they offered an Avalanche in steel and it was a Team Avalanche.
