2003 GT Performer

Neon Performer

I felt sorry for this heavy old charger that turned up in a bodyshop looking very sorry for itself, covered in dents, rust and overspray. So I ripped it apart and salvaged what I could then bare metal restored the rest. God knows what I was thinking with the colour scheme but its certainly differnt. My Decals were custom made for me and the NEON Performer was born.

Re: 2003 GT Performer

I just had to comment and say what an awesome color combo.  You've got guts going against the grain and I respect that.  I also personally love neon so it makes it that much nicer in my book.  I'm going to try and whip up a multi-color neon ride myself some day.  Great save too.  That before and after is simply amazing.

Re: 2003 GT Performer

Man, I came across the very same bike cherry for $70 but passed on it because of the muted OG finish.  I wish that I would have seen this earlier.  I like your neon finish much better than the OG.  Nice work!


Cool, a new bike.  Wait a minute.......where am I going to hide this one.  She's going to catch me...

Re: 2003 GT Performer

very good job on restore.    probably was headed for the dumpster.

hey, wasn't there a freestyle bike around 87 - 88 that came like this??  not exactly these colors, but every part was a different neon color??   i could of sworn my neighbor had a gt like that ( could of been different brand tho ), and he called it a clown paint, but i google searched it and haven't seen anything like it.
