    1994 GT Zaskar LE

    Haven't posted anything in a while- been busy with life and stuff. But I picked this up recently and thought I'd share. It needs some cleaning, but it's all there- the original skinwalls, grips, bar-ends, M737s, and the cranks are oh-so-pretty. I love M900. Anyone know if I can restore the finish on the SL's?

    Very sweet. I kind like the patina on the forks, but everything else would gleam with a good polish!
    Somec is like the digital Zunow

    Nice. The XTR stuff appears to be in pretty good shape. It has my favorite saddle on it, too. Built one nearly identical to that for a client around that same time.

    I just picked up the same year Zaskar with same components. The SLs on mine are MUCH worse condition than yours.... bad enough that I may keep them all nasty looking purposefully.

    Great pick up!

    EDIT: Mine is missing the M900 crankset and the syncros cap is missing. Does anyone have an 'extra' one just laying around?

    mmm M900 is nice.

    Love these bikes. I just picked up a 1991 model, nowhere near as nice though.

    Have you got a weight?

    dude, that totally made me laugh. You like what you like, that's for sure. I kinda like GTs, so I'm probably not going to do anything to it except clean it and polish it. And then ride it- without scratching the nice finish on the gruppo, hopefully.

    Nice pic up DJ. I got a couple just like it in the past month. I have those same decals new if you are interested. They are a refinishers decal not die cuts but with tender handling and a little heat they go on nicely. Parts bike....that's funny coming from a guy who thought his fillet brazed Psyclone was hot sh*t a year or so back
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.

    It looks pretty dialed in to me. Ride the fcuk out of it!

    Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish will make that frame look like new! It does wonders on natural alum.

    I wouldn't polish it, I like that kind of aluminum look.

    Smooth machine. Trials bike length stem, though. Period correct, of course. Good to see someone riding an old machine!

    Good job of finding such a nice example!

    I've always liked GT:s myself, had a Karakorum Elite back in -93, a decent riding bike that too.

    And that M900 -group, mmm...
