Hi all,

This Purple Haze 1990 was the first of my 3 Karakorams and is probably my personal favorite.

I have the original rigid forks in the shed should I wish to put it back standard but for now it rides fantastically on the Mag 21's.

Mechs and chainset are Dx, front cantis are Xt M732, it has the original tioga avenger headset and is wearing a pair of black Ritchey bars with ODI grips and Lx 8 speed sti's as I wanted a bit more modern gear spread on this one.

Hope you all like it and thanks for looking.

Lovely machine I love the colour it's just perfect and the matching bar ends are ace.

I love these.. perhaps more than any other old steel GT.. 

Mine was pretty special and I should never have sold the frame but it would never have been built back up and ridden..
