First of all a massive big thanks to NeilM who not only picked this up today, then dropped it down to me today as well - (over 100 mile trip) to wellington.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GT-Karakoram- ... 7675.l2557

The condition isnt too bad, I've already replaced the front tyre with an old Ritchey Megabyte I got about a year back down a local reclaimers yard and added spd's - needs a good clean but I'm very happy with it. Been after one for a good price since a got a 16" frame a few years back but it was too small.



I've given it a bit of a clean - was going to stick to how it came but decided to replace the bars with some black kore bars, and replaced the seat and also the tyres with some blackwalls - just need to sort out a black seatpost.

Yes. the groupset is all original - just got to immerse the shifters in some kind of degreaser as they're gummed up a bit.

feels a bit heavy but I have been riding with slicks on my 93 Karakoram and Zaskar - looks lovely in my dark man cave.
