I have a classic GT Tempest a friend of mine gave me a few years ago after he stopped riding. I don't know much about it except that he bought it in high school (so it's probably around 15 years old) and it is in really good shape. It has been sitting in my garage for a few years and I've only ridden it a handful of times.
I just finished doing some work on it since it has needed new brakes for years and the last time I was out the bolt holding the saddle to the seat post shared off. It now has a fresh set of brakes, a new seat post, and I even found and replaced the air pump bracket that was a casualty of my last ride. The only item it really needs to be complete is a headset stem cap. Does anyone know where I can find one that will work? It doesn't have to be GT-specific, although that would be cool.
Below are a few pics, including one of the top of the headset sans cap:

I am picking up a 2012 Fuji Tahoe 29 2.0 this week, but I plan to keep this GT around to tool around in campgrounds and use as a backup bike since it's still in such great shape and is a blast to ride. I also think the retro paint job is pretty cool, too.
