Wow....real cool! I forgot about topline cranks. I got into riding mtb's in the mid 90's and so much of my revisiting my roots (hardtails) is rediscovering things and bikes that were out of reach for me financially at the time and items and bikes I was unaware of....anyway real cool bike👍

Mate I was the same…I basically build the bikes now that I could never afford back in the day.

Do you still have that auqua blue Zaskar frame? I have an acid green 98 Zaskar LE that is a 18 inch frame and would like to trade for a medium 16 inch....I do have a set of decals from Gil that I have not gotten around to applying
