GT Bicycles (1972–2016)
In 1972, Gary Turner, one of the pioneers of BMX Bicycle production got his son Craig Turner involved in BMX racing at five years old. Light weight BMX bikes were rare in those days. Gary being a machinist and welder decided to build a light weight race bike for his younger brother Glenn Turner and his son Craig Turner. He hand belt every frame and fork in his garage in Santa Ana California. He was constantly changing and improving his craft. Craig and Glenn started ripping it up at the local BMX tracks, naturally everybody wanted one of his BMX frames and forks. After building one of the best brands of BMX bicycles with his late partner Richard Long, he retired from the corporate bicycle world in 1998.
Recently, Gary Turner himself started producing a few frames. We are putting those in a separate category:
