96 GT LTS DH

ebay find for $375 US

Frame is absolutely PERFECT. A little polish and some new decals and you wouldn't be able to tell it from new.

Marzocchi Mr.t fork
DT/Hugi front hub on Mavic 121
hed rear wheel on a sachs hub, with sachs powerdisc rear disc
Magura Gustav front disc
XTR shortcage rear der & 8 speed shifter
GT CNC machined aluminum cranks with UN72 BB
AC chainguide
kore stem, syncros post

I'm only keeping the frame and rear der, will sell off the rest of the stuff. Possibly relace that HED rim to one of my Tioga straight pull front hubs. Going to rebuild her with BETD pivots, new decals, and a risse shock. Undecided on the rest of the build as of yet. I've been looking for one of these for a very long time.... :D
