1997 GT Vertigo
All OG except for the seat
I get in touch with this local guy who's all like: "Hey man, I got this real nice '87 GT Vertigo! Come check it out!"
So, I go check it out.
"Uhm... sorry bro... this is a '97 serial, not an '87 bike." (serial YC9706xxxx)
I show him my online reference.
"Are you sure, man? I don't know, man. I was told it's an '87. You can't believe everything online."
"Whatever, bro. Pretty sure that you're wrong, and that I'm right. But, I'm digging the green/blue decals over that chrome, so I'll still take it... but not for anything near your asking price. You get '97 bucks for a '97 bike."
And so it went. Re-greased everything, added the 1 missing Tech77 lever, connected a new cable, and that was pretty much it. This is actually a smooth rider. Was considering replacing the tires/seat/grips/pedals/sprocket with neon green to match the decals.... thoughts?
