Had this one a while but never posted any type of thread regarding the build

First the exploded shot of all the bits

Bike isn’t mint by any means , but isn’t too bad. Perfect to actually ride without worry.

Deliberately I’ve gone for mainly XT group and mid range bits as it’s more likely to be built like this back in the day.

Judy SL and spins kind of fit well I think. Really stereotypical of the times and iconic like the Zaskar.

You gotta love a red zaskar! Think that will look sweet with Judy SL and Spins & Pana smokes

Haha it does look worse in pics than it really is in real life

I’m really a 18 inch size but Zaskars just look so good in a 16.

Wow! That looks amazing. Spins don't generally float my boat but they just look 'right' on that! Dammit I think I need a Zaskar in my little collection. :D
