Going to be nice. Maybe you do need to sell it, to buy a new chair!

Unsure about the red DX brakes, unless you put more red bits on it.

Is it a RTS-3? I would have thought so, as they (IIRC) were the only ones in that colour.

Its a '97 RTS, as far as i know, that was the only one produced in '97, as they were being faised out - http://www.mtb-kataloge.de/Bikekataloge/PDF/GT/1997.pdf

:lol: :lol: :lol: the chair is a bit knackered, but like an old pair of trainers, i still love it, might just drape some cloth over it.

Lovely Matt, I'm impressed 8)

Loving the GT grips.....if you ever want to get rid of them, shout me :wink:

RST forks look ok IMO. I know they arent top drawer, but I had them on my RTS for a long time and loved them! Never any problem at all.

How does she ride??
