If anyone is interested just found this brochure of GT 1997 catalogue. Bravado's in it plus some other stunners from GT's line up. I know it's in German but good source for builders trying to get original spec list on GT bikes

I'm the same way inclined, why put old parts on really good frames. Components have come a long way in the last 10 years and shimano's trickle down technology mean that components costing hundreds in the 90's are now 1/4 of the price for the same if not better spec.

I really love retro builds they bring back so much nostalgia and make me feel young BUT I've experimented with the build on this frame and I love it. The reason I put modern parts on this frame was primarily because it was mint NOS and wanted a new bike look. In my opinion it works and works well.

I really want a Xizang so to fund it I'm definitely going to sell this bike and will be listing it on eBay. What do you think would be a fair Buy it Now price. I'm thinking that this would be a great xmas present for someone and it's the ideal time to sell.

I might consider putting it up on auction but would have to put a reserve on it. I would want the bike to sell but am not willing to give it away for peanuts. What would you think would be a fair reserve price. I have considered breaking up the parts to resell but it seems a shame to do so.
