1995 GT Cruiser Progress Thread

My name is Mike and I am 14 yrs old.  I just got this GT Cruiser F/F from a member here.  I plan on building this over the winter and ready to ride in the spring.  I'll update the progress as I go along.

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Re: 1995 GT Cruiser Progress Thread

Got some more work done today.  Bought some wheels from Hobbes that my dad cleaned up.  I put some fork decals on and changed out the chainring and put the pedals on.  I still need to find the downtube decals....

Re: 1995 GT Cruiser Progress Thread

These 90s GTs cruisers are becoming popular and the prices aren`t going down. My brothers gf has one and she loves it. She built it all GT parts. I`ve been looking for used pads for it, can`t find em and they`re not cheap when I did find em.
Red or black tires on yours?

Charlie Brown had super mint GT that I rode for a day. I tried to buy it but he didn`t want to sell it at the time. I`m 6'3" and these GTs are big. Did the pads come in black only? I still need some.
