Thanks for posting those Kurt.  Could you post the Pro Performer too?  It's a few pages over on the same page as the 26's.

I wonder if the Pro Performer shares any geometry with the EF Proformer?  I think the EF has 14.5 CS and this one has 13.5...Ef is like a 20 inch top tube and this one is 21.... but im not sure.

I still want one of these more than the GT smile
Eddie Fiola, '80s Freestyle BMX sensation and former King of The Skateparks, has reentered the BMX market with the release of a new signature series frame, fork and handlebars dubbed the "Proformer." The collection, available in Fiola's signature "Eddie Yellow" colorway, mimics the GT Performer frame construction of the mid '80s, but features updated geometry and modern technology such as removable cable guides and brake mounts, and an integrated headset and Mid bottom bracket. The frames were constructed at True Torch Welding in Santa Ana, Calif."I know some people will want to preserve this, but I prefer they ride it. Seeing someone riding this bike would be the best reward," said Fiola.The first 50 from the collection will ship in a collectible carton, and will also include a 22-page book titled "My Life Behind Bars," a full color hard cover book filled with photos of Fiola's BMX years. The second set, items 51-100, ships without the book but features Fiola's autograph on the frameset. "This was a very hard project to work on," Fiola added.
The new limited edition PROFORMER Collection from Eddie Fiola was designed by him and made in the USA. The frame, fork, and bar were meticulously perfected to be exactly how Eddie wanted his rider. Owners will enjoy the technology of a modern BMX bike with the old school detail of your childhood bikes. All three components are serial numbered to match

Eddie has made a VERY limited run of PINK PROFORMER Frame/Fork/Bar Collections. There are only a few more sets available to the public, and the profits of each one of these will be donated to support Breast Cancer causes that Eddie and his family support. This is a special edition for a great cause

I wonder if Eddie had a hand in helping GT design this PP since it's a lot like his.  I bet the complete GT PP will be in the $500 range.

FREEK, if you had one of these chrome PP's what color would you powder it?  And would you go 87 Performer decals or 86 PP?

I think it's funny they called it an 86 design but added 85 decals.  Almost like they wanted to directly compete with the EF's following.  There are a ton of guys out there that wishes they bought the EF.

Re: 2018 20 inch NS GT Pro Performer thread... who likes it?

I wonder if the slice has an OS GT looking logo stamp with 4130 and if the font is different?

The 990's and cable guides didn't come out til after 87.  The 87's had the single brake post centerpull brakes mounted on bottom of CS.  I think it's cool they did it like that though.  GT needs to do a s-bend 87 PP or PFT next, but it better be 4130 too.  smile
