1999 GT Avalanche

Picked up this 1999 GT Avalanche from the local CO-OP . it was pretty much a frame and Fork with the rear wheel, It was covered in thick green paint. but underneath was the cool H.O.T Green paint.

I got the green paint stripped off of the original paint and graphics.  I did the maintenance on the period upgrade fork, the Rock Shock SID Race.  the rear wheel that came with the frame, was a nice Mavic unit with Shimano XTR hubs.

I had recently before picked up some Magura Race Line D, so i figured that the neon yellow brakes would be a good addition to this green GT.
