GT freestyle info....

new guy here and I have a freestyle thats been hanging in my garage for the last 10-12 years. Trying to decipher exactly whay I have here to determine what if anything I want to do with it(sell it or keep it as a conversation piece) Numbers on it read FS 12961153 which to me it means its a 96 model freestyle built in December? The decals read freestyle pro tour and it's a 4130 chrome moly/chrome frame. The chrome frame is near perfect, no rust issues at all and overall its pretty nice. This is where I get confused though. The bar tree seems to be an earlier model than the bike and the seat post is swept. Also the front sprocket is solid black wth the GT logo's on it instead of milled or cast with lightening holes. It also has the spoked wheels instead of the cast wheels as well so it really confuses me as to what I actually have. I'll try to load some pics when I can. Any idea's or advise? Whats a bike like this worth realistically? Thanks in advance, Bill

1997 GT Pro Freestyle Tour smile

One of my all time favourites!
If you don't want this, send it to my place smile

Nobody will tell you how much it worths....
For you to know, it doesn't worth much, cause it's not the 'team' version and plus that it is from an era that not many collectors are interested in.

Good to know and thanks a lot. I guess it will get it's new tires and a tune up before I put it away. Someday it might be a classic! lol

Re: GT freestyle info....

dont touch it. its to new and nice looking to need a tune up. As far as value goes your best off
leaving it as original as possible.

what makes some of these old bikes classics is not so much JUST how old they are but the era they were produced and what
was going on in the country at the time. If you think simply letting it get "older" will make it a "classic" then you may end up
being disappointed. hmm

Hmmm that looks like a decent GT tire on the front... I'd say find a match for the rear and keep them from drying out and deteriorating over time. Personally, I'd get rid of that reflector and adust the bar angle just to it's a bit easier to look at tongue

Re: GT freestyle info....

All true....but then again, nobody thought my 1970 camaro would be a classic either. Now it's hard to buy a really nice one for under $20k. Patience......... wink

Re: GT freestyle info....

The car is fun to drive and has done the full Hot Rod Power Tour twice. May try it again this year if we have time. Between my wife and I we have five cars and three motorcycles so it keeps us busy keeping them clean and maintained.
