Really nice machine Vitor! My Xizang's follow the lines too, but possibly with some Syncros parts...

As for the seatpost, if it's Shimano, then it should be silver M910. Or they might have used Kore as well. At least in 1995 Team GT used True Temper handlebars but again, a Kore in 1996 is a possibility. The bar ends were blue in 1995 and yellow in 1996.
Juli used Selle San Marco Concor saddle (before that Avocet O2).

Do you happen to have any photos of Julie or Baker from 1996 season?

Here are few from 1995 I guess (because of XTR M910 & proto M950)

Hi guys.

Thanks for your comments and positive feedback.

Kai, i also tought about the M910 seatpost. I have one at home, but it didn´t seem so nice as this one on the frame.

They changed the bars from True Temper to GT Easton and Kore in ´96. I´ve seen pictures with both, but neither one is easy to find...

She used a San Marco Concor! Thank´s! I was trying to find out which one was, but could get a clear pic. :wink:

Right now, i can give you the link for a video coverage of the race (portuguese spoken, sorry), but i have some magazines which i can scan and send you (or post on that VRC thread where you posted yours :wink: ). Here it is - CLICK

Cheers

Absolutely gorgeous Vitor. I have a set of GT skewers in team yellow and blue, are they from around that time or are they later?
