    1989 GT Karakoram

    Finally got the bike together. Thanks to all who helped me pin it down as a '89 model. All original except for the saddle and tires. Mountain LX group, Araya grey anno rims.
    The seatpost got messed up because of a burr on the seat tube, so if anybody has a 26.4 seatpost they don't need....

    I'm not usually a fan of red and yellow together...but I like it.

    I like the fact that it's pretty much all stock too. Very nice.

    Wow - great blast from the past - I had a very similar bike; same color, logos, etc., but I think mine was an '88 and had a different parts group. Very authentic - nicely done!
