New project (thanks, ishaw ;)!), ready for a complete makeover:

Not sure of the year of manufacture and whether it is in fact an RTS-2, or RTS-3 (yet).
Yes: those used to be yellow Corratec Diamant slick tyres :lol:

Stripped to 'bare' aluminum :lol:

8)

The initial plan is to throw some parts on it to get it rideable to see if this full susser is a keeper.
If so, I might consider to sit down, remove some stickers and polish, although I actually like the 'patina' ;)

The Tioga Alchemy headset is still running smooth, as is the BB.

Loads of potential :D

Can anyone tell me what year this beast was manufactured? S/n doesn't say much (to me)..

While reading this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=109282 I extracted the following points of attention that might point towards type of RTS and year of manufacture:

s/n: 5(?) C(G?) 024811 -the first bit is partially covered by a thick weld :) ..
Rear triangle pivot: present
Shock: Noleen w/ piggyback
Material decal: 7000 series

So, would that make it a 1995 GT RTS-2.. :roll: 8)?

There are even decals (other than the original Mavic ones) on the gold rims.., that match the gold of the Mag21's perfectly, BTW 8)
