Sick , upper u brake & bright color  . I always wonder what condition head tubes are in on everyone's bike from this era. Back in the day no one carried the right tools to properly retighten a threaded headset.
Take it easy at the skatepark. Full face helmet suggested with old bicycle. 
i had a used black performer like this one, a chrome 98 mach 1,and last year of slammer  and have two 97(1 new ,1 beat down) tours and 96 fueler kit.
wow i had never thought about how many gt's ive owned over my 15 years of bmx

Too many spare parts - that's a nice problem to have. Looks like you found a nice way to fix the problem...


Looking for: Skyway pro bars 2012 or 2016 reissue in white
