GT for my boy this Christmas.

My boy wanted a GT so I thought what the heck. I was hopping to put one together for the kid down the road who had his stolen, but with the economy I just cannot do both. I may work on one for him latter after Christmas. Anyway, here is what I have for my boy so far. Still need a headset and seat for it. I have been working on a seat clamp with a dremil tool to open it up to fit. I have been hiding it in our storage are.

2001 GT 3.0 Frame and forks.
Hazard Light rims and hubs 14mm slotted for 3/8 use.
Animal chain ring.
Profile 180mm cranks.
GT Pedals
GT Piston stem.
GT Fubar bars.
Promax Brakes.
Demolition Grips for now.

Hope he likes it.

Re: GT for my boy this Christmas.

Does the neighbor kid's family not have the money to replace the stolen bike? If not i have a gt power series frame, haro forks and old some wheels. You can have  them for free if you want to pick them up I am in PA. I would love to help a kid have a merry Christmas.

Re: GT for my boy this Christmas.

His dad is out of work and looking. His mom is doing nights to keep things going. You don't know how happy the boy would be with that setup. I'll PM for some info.

Re: GT for my boy this Christmas.

Ridenhoop, that is a MUCH nicer frame than the one I was trying to give him.

I'm chipping in a snubnose GT seat, do we need any other parts?

sorry, I didn't realize you were going to offer him one. I saw he was from PA and thought it would make an easy pick up.

I have a few extra frames I was considering giving him, but I figured the GT would be perfect considering he was already doing one for his son.

Re: GT for my boy this Christmas.

Boy this is something. Last year I was able to give a different kid a Haro with help from everyone here. Never thought I would be doing it again to help a boy this year.
Thanks everyone.

Re: GT for my boy this Christmas.

On the forks with this frame are they threadless 1 1/8" or 1"?

Those chrome ones will work if they fit it.
