1988 GT Pro Series Team
1988 GT Pro Series XL ”Team Model” Show Build
My fiancé and I decided to build our first show bike. Luckily for us, we came across this 88 Pro Series XL f/f on OfferUp for $100. This show build went a long way for my fiancé and I. Detail was very important. 99%(about 115) metal pieces (besides spokes/powdered/anodized pieces) on this bike got Triple Chromed. Every washer, nuts, bolt, and screw that can be taken off, got dipped. Only thing we forgot to dip we’re both cable housing ends. I don’t know how we forgot about those LOL.
