So here it is... My nuisance GT LTS...

Shock blown, pivots so dead they wobble (or missing altogether), BB jammed in, shredded graphics, and a dull grey alu frame was how it was found... So, Ive polished it (badly!), sourced new decals, used lots of leverage to swap out the BB. Chainstay pivots en route from USA (maybe...) and possibly a shock on the horizon 8) 8) I will prob fit BETD replacements for the other pivots if I get on with it.

So decided to get it up and looking bike like today...
Still need brakes (on the case), cables, pedals. And I know, I will saw the seatpost off soon.

BB stamped with an 'M'.

Bits to fit...

Its a 100 mm azonic stem, not sure of the rise.
A proper old one tho... Got it NOS a while back for my RTS but didnt suit...
Bars are azonic too...

M739 running gear (except shifter - bombproof stx 8 sp)

Glad you like it!

Well here it is -

The rear shock that was siezed now moves, but is blown and has no damping... Like a pogo stick...

Bushes are shot so it rattles about... The chainstay ones are new but the rest are dead...

Feels quite nice tho, v short and small but maybe workable :wink:

Need to find a chain guide tho, the chain keeps dropping off!
