1987 GT Performer 24

87 Performer customized to 24".

Originally purchase a just the frame in September with intent of restoring it.  After searching the web i ran into pictures of the Knight Ind. Proformer 24" (at the time I thought it was a stretched out Performer) I wanted one. My friend Andy encouraged me to stretch one out. Started hitting bike swapmeets for the rest of the parts while i worked on the frame.  When I got the frame done i was going to use a 24" Akisu fork but it didn't look right. Luckily hboost happen to be selling one at the time. Once i received it worked some magic on the fork and the rest is history
