Hi all Reasonably new to Retrobike and this is my first build thread, so i give you my long time favourite the Gt pantera, Most of it is how i acquired it however I removed the rigid gt forks to a set of sprung NOS 1992 mt Shasta forks which in all honesty are probably even more rigid :lol: , put some new Fire XC pro's on and a splashing of blue ano all round ( chain ring bolts, skewers, pedals, dust caps, and end ferrules. It rides fantastic!

The blue and black with the silver frame looks excellent imo.

It looks even better "in the flesh" :)

That's a really nice looking bike, yours looks way nicer than the picture in the 1992 GT catalogue, well done!

Love this bike mate, it'd be a good choice for the tight twisty bits in Pines on Sunday too.
