You can go here and see which year matches your bike using frame color and components 1995 GT Talera - BikePedia It was made from 93-97. The bike frame and components are entry level which means you would waste money trying to upgrade it. Spend only enough to make it work right. It probably needs new rubber - tires and brake pads for sure if the ones on the bike are original or old. When I get a bike of this age to refurbish, I do tires, pads, and a general cleaning and lubrication of all moving parts. If you do that, all you have into it is a little sweat equity. My first bike was a one-speed. There's nothing on God's earth that would get me to give up a multi-geared bike for one that had no gears.
