    Need some assistance with a LTS-3 identification

    Hey guys, I have been lurking for awhile, but this is really one of my first times posting. I was wondering if I could get some assistance with trying to figure out what year this GT LTS-3 I have is and possibly what it is worth. I got the bike in trade from a guy on craigslist that needed a computer, and I needed a bike so it worked out well The PC was a spare and collecting dust in the corner anyway, figured I had nothing to lose.

    I have taken it for a few test rides and full suspension is just not for me, especially with the clipless pedals. I am hoping to turn around and trade it for a hard tail of some sort, but honestly have no idea as to what it is worth.

    Rather than list everything out I took a few pics of it and made a photobucket gallery to post. I know the stem, bars, grips, bar ends, and pedals are all aftermarket, but don't know if that adds a ton to the overall value.

    Here are the pics:





















    Hope this pics are good enough, I took them over my lunch break and did not have time to get a complete written down list of everything on the bike. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    According to Bikepedia the ball burnished was an option on the 1997 model.

    +1 for it being a 97 model.

    I watch ebay alot and see the GT LTS going anywhere from 400-500. Those particular components won't add much to the value a bike, unless they are some old vintage boutique stuff hanging on it (probably in some shade of ionized color). I saw a mint LTS-1 go for an absurd amount because it was never ridden and all stock.

    Nice bike, by the way. If I didn't have 7 GTs already, I'd buy it.

    Have a nice hardtail GT that you would be willing to trade john?

    Assuming of course you are in the Chicago-land area.

    As blasphemous as it sounds, the only hardtail I have is a old Gary Fisher. Good luck!
