1991 GT Performer

I bought this LAVA red 1991 GT Performer locally from Ockizard. Now I know that 1990 to 1999 is technically considered "mid school", but I like to think of any bike with a stem bolt and a wedge as "old school". I'm sure thats grounds for a debate, but it's just what I like - thats all! Regardless, as my GT freestyle bike addiction continued to progress, I decided that I wanted GT's from the 80's and the 90's too! When I got it, all the main parts were there. It just needed to find a few more little parts and finish assembling it. Just before the last parts arrived, which were the era correct pedals, Ockizard contacted me and was suffering some serious sellers remorse. I wasn't sure I wanted to sell it back, after all, I just got the final piece to the puzzle. It was now complete. But, the more I thought about the more I realized that you never forget your first! And who am I to deny Ockizard from reconnecting with his first GT! I emailed him, we worked out the particulars and as I write this, Ockizard has now retained ownership of this beautiful LAVA red 1991 GT Performer. Shoot, I want somebody to ride with too! I really hope you enjoy riding it as much as I enjoyed bringing it back to life. Hey, I'll give you a shout! Lets go riding sometime!

Thanks again Opie...the entire process (including the initial post-sale panic) has been a pleasure.

Folks, Opie knows his shit and he loves talkin' shop (both BMX and the motorized variety as a former AMA pro).  He's definitely an asset to the museum!

New mags en route!

Re: 1991 GT Performer

Hi guys!  I'm new... be gentle.....  I have this exact same bike that was purchased for me brand new when I was 11.  I kept it in mint shape and I plan on giving it to my 3 year old son some day.  One thing is that I do have a couple chips on the lava red paint and would love to get some matching paint.  Do you know anyone who has ever been successful at matching that lava red?  If so, I would love to know the color or where I can get some.

Thanks
