Hi folks. I'm after a bit of info on a bike I've just bought locally.

I *think* it is a GT Zaskar circa 1991 - but I understand that there are a few out there that are actually Panteras.

It has the flat cap on the end of the top tube, U brake on the rear, frame number 04910903 stamped on the inside of the left dropout, and NO stamping on the other dropout.

Any help confirming the identity would be great :)

Sounds like a Zaskar to me.

There is usually a frame size close to the frame number as well, 16, 18 etc.

Some photo's would help with definite identification.

Thanks guys.

I'll take some pics tomorrow when the light is better.

Is it right to say then, that early Zaskars sometimes don't have 6061 on the RH dropout ?

Looks like a good project got the original stem and Xt u brake plus thumbies are they Xt to? What are the forks? Future shocks? I'd say its a 91 zaskar, just needs a hell of a polish :lol:

The forks are Shocktech. I had exactly the same forks on my Zaskar when I built it in 94, mainly because I could not afford a pair of Pace forks.

I would have thought the elastomers had long since turned to goo. If they still work, then just service them the same as you would Pace, or replace them with GT rigid, Pace or whatever takes your fancy.

Just looking over the bike, you have some nice original kit there, Turbo saddle, Zefal bottle cage, Middleburn chain rings(?). That's a real early 90's build.
