hi, just purchased a 96 (i think) gt tequesta, blue paint with the white detail. I after some help on the original spec/parts to re-juvenate it to original spec. Some mechanics at the local cycle shop think its vertually standard with rudy fron suspension forks and a mixture of suntour/shimano gruppo. Can anyone direct or list the original spec so i can start sourcing and building/replacing. It does have V brakes which Im not sure they had back in the day?

cheers

Are you sure it's a Tequesta?

It certainly doesn't sound like a '96 they were a two colour fade and Tequestas had rigid forks.

Suntour gear sounds more like early '90s I know GT used it on some bikes. Does it have a U brake?

What you have sounds more like a Timberline which came in blue with white decals in 96 and were fitted with a Judy C. But they had STX I think. :?
