    I'm not really sure what it is but it looks like it takes 3 power units.

    Strange angle, looking again is it a contraption or 3 blue bikes?

    Ignore my rubbish post.....typing without thinking....:wacko:

    A steel framed GT MTB?
    Could be a GT Outpost?

    If it has no front suspension then it would make a great trekking/touring bike.

    If we guess correctly do we get a prize?

    I'm with Drago on this, that Graphic is easily identifiable even with a spoke stuck in one eye....

    Managed to get some air in the tyres and a better once over.

    Looks like rear wheel bearing adjustment and as previously mentioned a good service and we should be ready to go.

    Nice! I really like those old GT frames, would like to get hold of one myself when I've got more room in the garage.

    My first real mountain bike was one of those in red in the early 1990's. Really good fun to ride with really bad brakes that meant with the brakes hard on you would accelerate down steep hills. Not so good on rocky steep downhills.

    Lets you get on with proper mountain biking unlike the estate agents called nigel, Gerald and dante on their fs enduro bikes.

    Tyres inflated to 65 psi and what a difference a bit less tyre howl and a slightly harsher ride but nicer to ride :laugh:

    Just need that Kuwahara now :laugh:
