Yes, That is a 1990 GT TEAM Avalanche. The bike that launched ol GM himself into GTdom. I had an 18" frame just like it. Nice pick Utahdog. If I hadn't been working at auction end you'd have paid a lot more to have had a chance to own it.
thanks GM... Not like you need MORE GTs anyway!
Well If I land one of these I can complete the "Team" Avalanche collection. Will then have all years from 90-93.
The thing that always troubled my about this 1990 model year Team Avalanche was the weight. One would have thought with a Prestige frame and RM-17's that the bike would have come in at 25lbs or a tad under at that time period but mine was over 28lbs. Huge difference when I went to the Xizang in 1991 with mostly Ti and CNC parts and dropped the weight to under 23 lbs.
