The 90s Zaskar frames are actually very heavy. I had a 18" 96 Zaskar and it was over 1800g if I remember correctly. At the same time, a same-size, same-year Xizang was 1400g.
The lightest listing I've seen has been 1997 Trek OCLV 9900 Pro Issue frame from 1997 with 1264g.
Regarding decals, they're easy to obtain from Gil @ Retrodecals (https://www.facebook.com/retrodecals)

Fast forward to 2006 when I...
Yeah, the decals are under clear coat on this one. I was thinking of getting a decal from Gil and then cutting the needed section of O for it, but let's see.
Best of luck for the commute - I'm working from home today so it's nice & warm ;)
I also swapped the original Tioga Bio-Grip II grips that had become tacky (as they do when the surface starts to wear) for a newer pair in better condition. Those Ritchey brake levers are essentially Dia-Compe SS-7s with a different blade. I've got the SS-7s on my Yo Eddy and I was surprised to...
Had to do some patching up - the worst scars were where the kickstand had been mounted. That f*cking kickstand had been mounted too tight and it had unfortunately caused a slight dent to the seat stay as can be seen from the photo. :(
