Re: 1998 GT Performer

Nice mix of mid and new school parts, these sure are smooth riding bikes if a little on the heavy side. Will be starting my '99 soon, will be going with a metallic purple re-paint, black 3 spoke GT mags & chrome parts. Keep the wheels rolling bro... Mark

Yeah they are heavy. Curb crawlers I call them.
