1985 GT Pro Performer

EXCELLENT CONDITION, ORIGINAL CONDITION

I JUST PICKED UP THIS SWEET RIDE, ALL ORIG. EVEN THE TIRES WITH MINIMAL DRY ROT, WAS HOPING SOMEONE COULD TELL ME EXACT YEAR. THE TOP FRAME STAND TUBES ARE NOT LEVEL WITH TOP TUBE LIKE THE 85's BUT THE COMPONENTS LIKE BARS, NECK SEEM TO BE 85.

Re: 1985 GT Pro Performer

The pro in print is supposed to be made in Japan/USA  if cursive Taiwan. That's if this bike is all OG and at least I remember being told that in the late 80's. of course there's a lot more info out there today.


That's right I'm different. I like dyno's!!!!!

Actually for 1985, the "PRO" in block type usually means Japanese-made, although really early Japanese pro performers, like mine, have the "Pro" in script. All 1985 US-made pro performers that I've seen have the "Pro" in script. Taiwan did not start making GT bikes until 1986, and in that year didn't make pro performers, just performers, which were not all chromoly, like the US and Japanese frame and forks.

I'd guess a G5 serial on the bb?
