1999 GT Speed Series Cruiser 24

A potent mixture of stock, NOS and a touch of new...

I approached this build with the idea of going with whatever parts I wanted (modern or mid school) and not limiting myself to the era. As soon as I got this bike, I completely disassembled every nut, bolt and nipple. I sent the bars and forks out to be re-chromed. While I was at it, I decided to chrome the GT Rhythm System Hubs. I think they turned out sweet. Then it was time to hand polish all of the aluminum parts to a mirror finish. It took a while but turned out better than I was expecting. Next I laced up the freshly chromed hubs to a pair of chrome Sun Rhyno Lite XL hoops. By the time that was done I received most of the parts I needed including all new chrome plated bolts. It was time for the final assembly which went way too fast. I’ve built hundreds of bikes but not at this level. This has been one of the most fun and rewarding builds I’ve done. Thanks for checking out my post!!!
