Now theres an oddity

The Backward backwards is definitely maiden Taiwan

but its 6061

and original decals, I know this as they are flaking off exactly as my LTS and Zaskar both did

I think this may be a trick question!

I've only ever had two GT's, a Richter 8.0 and a Zaskar Race... this means bugger all I know.

Truly, you should have known. Nah I would have said Richter straight up. Also the Backwoods is more like 1998.
