I decided that after recently buying the Zaskar of my dreams, I needed another one! So, I found this sorry looking one on Ebay with 4 hours to go, bid and won
I thought it was a 1992, but it turns out to be a September 1990
So, here it is at the beginning. Literally, unwrapped and photographed.
First off, I will be changing the forks. I have 2 sets of Indys available, and will probably plump for the SL's (new stickers and top cap on their way).
Drivetrain is a mash of LX, DX and SACHS. I'll keep what works, but definately ditching the twist shift for something else!
Then, to find a new saddle, seatpost and stem. The saddle is ubber retro GT, but not for me and will be For Sale along with the stem shortly.
Then, Autosol, Brasso, new tyres and we're done. How quickly though, I dont know..........a week maybe
