GT TEAM LTS Thermoplastic Carbon Fiber / STS
Wicked Cool RETRO XC/MTB – plush suspension
This is a remarkably interesting GT bike and I believe quite rare
At first glance you would guess this as a GT STS with LTS Decals , However in 1998 GT made a limited run of Team LTS which were thermo plastic carbon fiber like this one, I couldn’t be 100% certain, but I’ve seen some early LTS’s which seem to be same as the STS looking frame, also quite possible
it may have been a special or GT team order bike – one that could be sold thru bike shops that would buy large volume of GT Bikes.
It comes from the original adult owner here in Southern California, where he only lightly rode on bike path.

Wicked Cool US RETRO MTB / KULT/ Classic
The Mighty Team GT stands out from the rest of the crowd with the gorgeous and “oh so COOL” Curved seat tube, and magical CNC Machine work as well as Precision hand welded triangle.
compared to any of its 1998 rivals, she had groundbreaking plush travel, and was considered a serious contender for downhill and cross-country racing. This example was NEVER extreme ridden by its one original owner, who rode on local bike and was always cleaned/stored indoor after use.
“Is that a custom bike?”
While out for a test ride at Zuma Beach I would get asked “Is that a custom bike?” This is a very valid question, since you are riding down the road on a bike, styled like no other, seemingly straight out of a Hollywood Kustoms shop
