check out my dayglo!

I landed this '87 GT Pro Performer today from an awesome dude on Craigslist. He bought it new and said it never had pegs or frame standers on it. There are no touch ups, dents or dings but there are a few scratches here and there. The seatpost has been Z'd from when he was "stupid" as a kid. The guy was pretty hard on himself about it. (I'd be interested in a super nice OG post if somebody has one) I just submitted it and waiting on approval. Anyway, hope y'all like it, reflectors and all.

They are made by Cheng Shin, Comp ST style. My guess is OG to the bike?

I got this off of CL Wisconsin. The PK and GT Pro were local Memphis CL.

Re: check out my dayglo!

You may be best off just dealing with the post. That color varied a good bit from the factory plus a lot of that dayglow stuff faded making it even harder to match. Some of it didn't even match from the factory...bars would be lighter shade than the rest and so on. Most of the refinished ones look off too. I wouldn't bother unless it was really bad but it looks good in the pics. Plus its original!

Re: check out my dayglo!

It's funny that everyone assumes it was a score because I got it on CL, I think I payed low FMV. I think it's worth at least $1k give or take to the right buyer and I payed $650 + shipping. Is this a score?

Re: check out my dayglo!

I'd say close to fair market. However, I doubt you could build it for that. Here's my breakdown...
It is a very nice survivor dayglow frameset (which is probably worth about what you paid for the complete)
And it has nice survivor parts on it (mallet, mags, etc.) but it's missing a lot of the high dollar items (Power Series cranks, Nippon, Superlaces, SR474's, Tech 7's) that make the high end bikes worth a lot. I would've paid that for it.
