1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour

My "Orange Bang" GT PFT built my way.  Big thanks goes out to Fredendo for helping me with the wheels!

I picked up the frame and fork off of ebay for a really good price and slowly thought out how I was going to build it.  A buddy of mine gave me some left over Tiger powder from one of his builds and it was just enough to do my frame set.  It took me awhile to gather all the parts, especially the Tech Picture disc.  I'm glad I waited and found one because it flows with the bike.

This was definitely a fun build and it rides really smooth!  I love the Power Series cranks, they feel great as well.  Here's a breakdown of parts used.

PARTS LIST:
- GT PFT Frame
- GT PFT Forks
- GT Performer Bars
- GT Mallet Stem with Pots Mod Bolt
- GT Layback Seat Post
- GT Seat
- GT Frame Standers
- GT Fork Standers
- GT Seat Clamp
- GT Power Series 175mm Cranks
- GT Superlace Hubs
- Ukai Speedline Hoops
- Odyssey Barefeet 20 x 1.75 Tires
- SR-474 Pedals
- Tech USA Picture Disc
- Dia-Compe FS990  Brake - Rear
- Dia-Compe Nippon Brake - Front
- Dia-Compe Tech 7 Brake Levers
- Odyssey Gen 1 Gyro & Cables
- Epoch Freestyle Head Set
- AME / GT Grips w/ Black Donuts
- KMC Chain

Re: 1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour

Glad to see that brake idea catching on. The one on my bike was the first I'd ever seen done that way, and I was shocked at how well it worked. Bike companies need to take notice and do away with the short cable...maybe not for a piece of chain, there are probably better solutions, but the chain definitely works and looks cool and takes people by surprises. I get lots of questions about mine.
