DayGlo Pink with GT Cyan Tires and Pedals

This is a fun bike to ride and easy to pedal.  I decided to preserve the OEM GT white tires in the original plastic.  I have always modified my bikes to get a personal and custom feel.  I added the GT Cyan Tires and Pedals.  I got the GT Cyan Grips too, but decided to keep the white to compliment the seat and stem.  The pictures do not do the dayglo pink justice.  In the sun the neon glow is richer and deeper in color and radiance.  

I plan to add an Odyssey Gyro G3 Cable Detangler (1-1/8") once I spray it white. I tried front side pull brakes but they make a lot of noise.  I am assuming they cannot handle a 26 inch rim very well.  So I plan to add 990 bracket mounts and white 990's to the front.  My first GT as a kid was a green GT Pro Performer with white OGK Performer mags and pink tires.  I had a local bike shop in San Antonio build it from the ground up.  After I left for college my dad sold it to a neighborhood kid for $25.  I was so pissed.  When this 2019 was launched I just had to have it.  It rejuvenated my love of BMX so I have been collecting 85-90 GT freestyle bikes and frames.  I will eventually add those to the Museum.
