Here's my 1991 Zaskar. Like all the commuters worthy of their names, it has fast tires ;)
Actually, those 1994 IRC DH tires are very comfortable, and when I commute I'm not in a hurry.
The chain and lights are part of the equipment so I haven't taken them off.
Almost everything is period correct.... Apart from the Thomson post... The origina XT seatpin is now on my Yeti because it needed a layback one.
