Been scouring gumtree for cheap as chips hack bikes, just don't fancy taking the FAT down the shops/pub!.. Picked this up tonight for the price of a decent round, all pretty much original albeit looking like something out of Indian Jones what with the cobwebs.

Now to strip and rebuild, pray for a sunny Saturday...

And there we go, all done and ready to go. Girlfriend said that I'd end up with a hack bike I didn't want to hack and I think she was right.....

Never owned a GT, but think they look awesome... and for 40 sheets we've got a winner.

525 is seriously strong stuff. Favoured by 'ard tourists. For 40 squid a proper bargain!
