Re: 1982 GT Pro

Yea, I just stuck that in there for pictures.
It's since had some parts replaced to make it race-able.

It was hung in the rafters of a barn for almost 30 years. 
When I first saw it it was covered in axle grease.
Whoever last mounted the BB cups and packed the BB bearings went overboard with the grease.
Over time that grease seeped out and covered the frame.
It protected the chrome perfectly!
