Looking for any model of MTB which looks similar to a mid-2000s Zaskar preferably with simple colour scheme - front suspension only.

Any suggestions?

Why not just buy a Zaskar ? They cost nothing from that era

GT Avalanche is always the one that eBay chancers dress up as a Zaskar.

i have a polished 2006 avalanche, 6061, flat end cap, found a bit of filler in a dent under the paint. maybe it was a zaskar that got dented in the factory. i don't need it.

They seem to be in the region of 250+, not exactly nothing.

There's certainly some daft prices for complete bikes at the moment... saying that it's probably worth scoring a frame only and building it how you wish. There's been a few of those recently that have been under a ton to buy.

Otherwise, what would you be looking for? There's not much out there that looks exactly like a Zaskar, unless it's another GT (or Apollo!). Is it that you are liking the idea of a hardtail Aluminium frame? That opens up a few more possibilities...

Probably save time/help if there was an indication of budget?

I think £250 isn’t bad but if your budget is £100 then it’s obviously a big difference...
