Crazy Pro Freestyle Tour

So I'm going to build a PFTTM like I want it, to ride it. I've considered doing this for a while as I have a couple F/F sets laying around to tinker with. One of the F/F sets in particular is mixed. It's a 9/87 Frame with the good fork, but it's had a couple spray bombs in the past. I got it from a garage sale. The thing is, I have been wanting to use the forks on my old personal bike that I have had for 25 years because my original ones were damaged beyond repair. I also have a spare set of GT "Moose" bars, so I'm going to blast it all and post some pics, let you guys see what I'm starting with.

I started out the day thinking we would just blast it and call it good but actually it really got going good. So I have already selected a color, 11 hours later this is what I have started. I'm not sold on the bars yet, I may switch them out for 4pc bars or possibly Vert bars. I'm going to put some Peregrine Phat Jacks on it laced to double wall HP's with black spokes. You can begin to see the theme. I have a couple sets of GTPS cranks sitting here but I'm not sure they will go with the theme. It's either going to be the GTPS cranks or a set of Primo Powerbites in black.

I have also selected a fork. (look closely)

Thanks! The 1" threaded forks are getting hard to find, but I have a couple sets I've been sitting on for a while. I think they will look awesome and provide a real strong platform for rolling tricks.

I went through my parts this morning and dropped everything off at the powder coater. So far I know the following specs:

Dia-Compe Japan 990's front and rear.
GT Mallet Stem
GT Epoch Headset
Gen 1 Gyro with NOS Gen 1 Gyro Cables
Peregrine HP48's on Sealed Peregrine Phat Jack or Sealed Suzue 14mm flatted hubs - both hubs are the same, 1 takes 14g spokes the other takes 12g Not sure if the nipples will fit, but I have a couple sets of hoops to mess with. (have to build them still but have all the parts, my suzue hubs are NOS, the Phat Jack ones aren't but they are in good condition.)
GT Layback Post (1987)
GT Moose Bars (1987) - May decide to swap these out for GT Vert bars if I don't like how the moose bars feel, I'm not sure about how the pull back is going to work with the change in fork rake.
GT A'ME Grips with GT expander clamp style A'ME bar ends. NOS
GT Seat Clamp (1987)
Vintage Izumi chain (black or white, undecided)
GT Power Disc (1987 stamped wing logo)
GT Chain wheel 42t or 43t undecided with NOS GT Chainwheel Bolts
GT Viscount Seat (black) or possibly GT Launchpad Seat black (depends on how the bars line up)
GT Show / GT Tour / Dyno Slammer Alloy pegs with locking bolts (I'm going to have to get creative with spacers to get this to work on the rear but if it works it will look cool as hell I think, the other issue I'm facing is that while a 14mm slotted axle will fit in the pacman dropout, it closes the gap in the fork and wont allow the large diameter peg to fit. I'm either going to have to slot the back of the axle so it fits over the drop out by about 3/16 or I'm going to have to modify the peg. I'm undecided on what to do here as of yet.
Ultrahive full sticker kit for 1987

Primo Powerbite / GT Power Series (undecided) cranks

--------------------

I love dayglow pink and blue but I'm kinda' sick of seeing it. I don't really like black on PFT's because it tends to make the frame tubes look smaller and doesn't let those amazing bends and craftsmanship stand out. So I'm going to build this one out in GT White with all semi gloss black components. That's one of the reasons I'm considering using the powerbites instead of the power series.

This is actually going to come together fairly quickly. My powder coater is awesome and really fast. I'll build the wheels today.

Re: Crazy Pro Freestyle Tour

The more I look at this wheel stuff the more prone I am to just using the Suzue hubs. I have some superlace on ukai's sitting here but I remember when I got my first PFT and I wanted to do that killer Miami that M.A. did at the end of RAD where you put your foot on the handlebars. I did that on my PFT when it was 6 months old and instantly bent the rim trying to get out of the trick. I bent the other ukai on the rear wheel during a miserably failed rock walk. Needless to say, I have a poor history with those hoops.

I love GT and I'm not taking a shot at them but those 36h Ukai's are one of the weakest hoops I've ever ridden. Now I'm 40 and more clumsy and fat than I used to be, I can see them collapsing even easier, especially with my 190lb a$$ on them.

That said I'm trying to find a dropout saver that I can slot. I basically need a 2" diameter by at least 3mm thick alloy washer that I can slot to allow the locking bolt on the peg to seat without hitting the inner washer on the hub. Any ideas?

Oh the splatter paint! You know that's not a bad idea. Could do a green/red/blue/black splatter on white with a crazy chain and all different color chainwheel bolts! Great concept maybe a little too "RAD" for my taste though LOL! Though I might consider doing a B/W contrast splatter or crackle, that would look good imho.

Re: Crazy Pro Freestyle Tour

I got the wheels built, I'll post some pics tomorrow it's too dark outside to take pics now. I went with the Suzue hubs because they are NOS and 14g so easier to deal with. I used the double wall NOS Peregrine HP's and black Primo spokes with Primo nipples.

The PC is done, I just have to go get it. Should have pics of that stuff tomorrow too.

Re: Crazy Pro Freestyle Tour

Ok guys, I'm sorry for the delay. Here is pics of what I've been up to. Everything you see is just loose install, nothing is fully tightened yet, still in the stages of making a few decisions. I would have actually gotten a bit further but some of the bolts are still out for powder coating.

Decisions made so far, problems I'm running into:

1. At this point I'm 99% sure I want to use GT Power Series cranks. I had a pair of spindle bolts that were pretty rashed up so I had them powder coated black, once I looked at it I knew it was the right choice.

2. The Pacman forks are in, I love the look. Currently the problem is the Suzue 14mm sealed hubs (same as a peregrine Phat Jack) I built the wheels on have locking nuts that are too wide for the front forks. So I'm in search of a different solution. The ones for a rear Suzue / Phat Jack hub will resolve my issue but the only ones of those I have are in use.

3. I'm torn between using a pair of Tech 7's I have an using some Tech 77's. The reason I'm torn is because this bike is a rider, I'm not sure the 7's will give me any more rider comfort or function than the 77's will give me. Since the 7's are so expensive I'm leaning towards just using my 77's.

4. Brakes are set, I have a matching pair of 97 FS and AD 990's. They are perfect. Got some Kool Stop pads for em and I'm happy.

5. BB is either going to be an SR Ultra Light or the SR version with the steel cups. Undecided so far but leaning toward the steel cups because I don't want to break the BB being stupid. The plastic UL cups were pretty weak and tend to cause your BB to go loose all the time.

6. Now, the bars. I like the way they look, but I hate the way they feel. I'm accustomed to a more flat bar. I've got a set of GT Vert bars on the way. I'm going to try looking at those pretty hard before I make a final decision. If I go with the Vert bars I'll have em PC'd white, and save the PFT/PP "Moose" bars currently on the bike for my all stock PFT build next month.

7. Wheels are built as you can see. I put them together last week. I have to say I'm pretty pleased with the way they came out. Straight as an arrow, spin for days and days. You know how you can spin a wheel and just hold on to it with 1 finger if they are perfect? Yep... Perfect!

8. Tires: I'm torn between Primo Wall's and GT Air Bags. Haven't made the decision yet. The airbags are 1.95 the walls I have are 2.1, I'll likely lean towards the walls because I generally like a wider tire.

9. GT Power Disc and 42t GT Machine Finish chain wheel, GT bolts. Nuff said there.

10. I have a couple of 87 seats but frankly, I'm leaning towards the launch pad seat. I like it, a lot.

11. As you can see, it's got a GT Epoch on it. Can't argue with that logic.

That's all for now. Will keep you guys up to speed. Btw if anyone has any GT Power Series power disc drive bolts, please pm me, I need a couple.

Thanks and enjoy the pics. Comments welcomed!

Thanks! I am definitely a fan of GT, I absolutely love em'. However, Superlace on shiny side Ukai's are crap for riding purposes and who wants to adjust a Nippon every 45 minutes? tongue

Stock builds are for show. Build it like you want it to ride it imho! That's what we did when we were kids, and isn't this kinda' about that?

Exactly!  That is pretty much why I have converted to new school builds because it's just that...what I want to build as a rider.  But, I do still have my all stock Slammer Team Model that is awesome, but does not see the street all that often.  But, can't wait to see the rest of the build.

Re: Crazy Pro Freestyle Tour

Ok here is what I was able to do today.

First, I fixed the hub spacing issue. I found that after having measured everything, the prior owner of the 1" threaded pacman forks i'm using on this build had installed a hub that was not 100mm wide and squeezed the forks in about 6mm. To correct the issue I applied one of my home made tools to the dropouts using a set of massive high grade washers and my threaded BB installer. What I did was I basically reversed the process by building the tool backwards compared to what you might do if you were installing a BB. So I made a spreader instead of a squeezer. Pics below.

I then allowed the forks to relax in the sun for around 5 hours while I did other things. I used a heat gun on the upper part of the fork tubes where they come together to allow the metal to relax back into it's prior shape. All of that done, the front wheel fits beautifully, the dropouts are now back to exactly 100mm. Done.

http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_110019_220.jpg

I then set about cleaning up the seat post clamp. I had it blasted with fine grit and then had them powder the whole thing. So the trick to this if you have never done it is to take a 1/4" WOOD drill bit that you don't care about and start using it by hand to carve your flanges back out of the powder coat. The reason I use a wood bit is because they are generally sharper, softer and take less metal with them. As you can see once it is done the finish is better than factory GT. Pics to follow.

Rough cut on the right side:

I took a break from the clamp and installed the rear down tube brake housing. Lots of ppl have trouble with this so I thought I'd do a little "how to" as I've done it about a million times and come up with a really good and easy system. Here is how it works.

First you put a pilot cable in. Its easy if you feed it from the top. If you have trouble getting it to come out of the bottom, stick a flat head screw driver in the bottom cable hole and when the cable runs into it, simply pull towards you and press the cable from the top. Presto, pilot cable in. Use something that has a stopper on the top or attach something if you are using bare cable. I like to use saddle cables for mountain bikes, they are 2 bucks, if you don't have one go get one. Pics below.
http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_115805_193.jpg
http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_115246_291.jpg
http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_115259_195.jpg
http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_115313_522.jpg

Now, from the bottom feed your cable housing on to the pilot cable. Hold the top part so that you don't push it out and just feed it on to the cable. If you did a good job cutting it or you have a factory cable, it will slide on nice and easy.
http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_115758_409.jpg

Look! There is your cable housing, simple as that. Now, once you see it up to this point all you have to do is grab your pilot cable and push up and towards the rear of the bike. This lifts the lip above the bottom of the S tube (down tube) and allows you to push the housing right out the top, easy as can be. And there you go, if you already knew how to do it, cool! If you didn't, now you do.

Ok, I put the headset together today. Please note, when you put an Epoch headset together, one of the cups is actually SUPPOSED to be slightly longer than the other. You really should measure them and make sure you put the long one on top. It's not longer by much, just enough to account for the bottom gyro stay. Also, if you are crazy and have your stuff powder coated to look pretty like I did, you might want to triple up an old microfiber, and cut a couple small holes in it to fit your clamp tool so you don't chew up your pretty powder coating and get mad! smile Pics below.

Ok, this is one of my pet peeves. When I see someone bust out a vice and start hammering on the bottom of their forks to knock the bottom fork race on I wanna yell at them. So this is how I do it. I broke an old Diamondback mountain bike years ago, I cut the A frame up and made a stool out of it but the front of the bike had great cromo tubes on it that I made this tool from. Basically it's a long top tube for a mountain bike that slips over the whole length of the fork and gives me a nice flat surface to smack with a hammer. I put the dropouts basically on my leg or if the thing is really stubborn I will wrap it in micro fiber and put the fork upright on top of a really soft 2X4, something pine works great and if you wrap it right you wont chew up your finish.

This is a pic of the DB frame parts being used as a tool.

End result:

http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_123623_521.jpg

Ok back to the seat clamp. Now, after I've done my rough cut I get some wet / dry 280 grit sand paper and wrap it around the end of the drill bit that I used. All it takes is 2-3 turns and presto, beautiful seat clamp just like new. Add sticker, and all is well.

http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg128/argulace/GTPFT%20Build/IMG_20131021_154516_185.jpg

I put the headset together also. Yes I know there is an extra washer in there, I always do that. It seems like that extra little bit of rise in the top gyro stay always gives me the brake function I like, so I just started doing it every time.:

GT Power Series install using SR UL mixed with chrome hardware and chrome SR cups - NOS bearings. This is the primary test fit, nothing is tight yet.

All in all I have a little bit of fabrication work to do on the front axles, I need to install the brakes, grips and some other misc stuff. But basically I think I can have it done in the next couple of days. I'll likely sticker up the frame tomorrow because I don't want to do it with the wheels on and cables installed. I'll pull the GTPS cranks off it and do a 2nd clean up, then install the GTPS stickers and finish all of that up.

The pegs still need to be drilled and I'll have to get creative with that front 14mm axle to get it to center in the dropout but it shouldn't be an issue.

More to come!

The bike looks awsome bro! I had to take a break from mine due to family time. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Re: Crazy Pro Freestyle Tour

Thanks guys, I'll have it done soon. Can't wait to ride it, though I do have to say I'm not optimistic that I'll be keeping the 87 GT bars. It's very likely I'll switch them out.

Re: Crazy Pro Freestyle Tour

Ok here is todays update guys. I hope you like it. I'm getting attached to this thing already and I haven't even ridden it LOL!

Cranks, fabrication on front 14mm axle to fit in center of pacman dropout, front wheel on and centered to the MM, 990 mounts cleaned up and polished, brake levers installed, grips installed (bar ends tomorrow), still waiting on the Mallet Stem bolts from powder coater, should be in tomorrow. Then I'll snug everything up and put the brakes and chain on. She's a roller, nearly done!

Enjoy the pics!
