1986 GT Mach One

My childhood bike reborn. Personally I think the Mach One is one of the best on and off the track bikes built, and I've been loving riding this one again.

I had one of these as a kid, was my second BMX bike, it had the same original "Huntington Beach" decal set as this one. I rode that bike from 7 to about 14 when it got stolen, found it about a week later, a little punk kid was ghost riding it as hard as he could into the side of a dumpster behind the local Winn Dixie. After watching him do it for a few seconds, I realized it was my bike, too late, broken head tube among various other things led me to strip it down and move on to my Hutch. But now 17 years or so later, Ive got another one. This frame set is all matching original decals and I've got everything to build it back to factory original minus the seat and grips. I've tried to build it back to as close to the way I had it before I lost her. I'm about 98 percent there now.

Almost done.
