GT Build for local boy.

I am starting this build thread so everyone that helped out can see this come together.
I will post a picture of the parts as they come in. I am going to post a final picture of the build and then with the boys Grandfather picking up the bike. I have asked for a picture of the boy and the bike together. His Grandfather said he would be happy to get the picture as soon as he could to me.
I hope everyone enjoys helping the boy that could and I for one cannot thank you enough for what you did to help him out.

Have so far.
Ridenhoop: Frame and Brakes. Got it.
RandolphCarter: Seat & Bars. Got it
jason486: Forks, Stem, grips and GT sprocket. Got it.
Johnnny: Seat post and Clamp. Got it.
99tourevive: Headset
whitebread: brake cable, wheel retainer washers for the front wheel, headset spacers, dice valve caps. Got it

2 tires. Got a set of tires, Tires installed.

First items to show are the cranks and rims I got local.

Re: GT Build for local boy.

Looks great. The left brake arm is missing the spring. I checked the local shop and he doesn't have one. Would you are anyone here have or know where I can get just the spring?

The right side. It has the brake cable attached to it. The arms match and it just needs the spring.

Johnnny: Seat post and Clamp.

Got the parts. Clamp is to small, but I can either send it back or open it up to fit. Leave me know.

Re: GT Build for local boy.

I got some tires, but the rear keeps going flat. Two tubes and looking at a new one.

Found a spring for the brake arm.
