GT Pro Performer Club Home Boy Edition

Sold: 2010-06-18

I picked up this Pro Performer along with another one through CL as a pair.  This one was in poor shape and had been re-welded at the junction of the top tube and seat mast.  I figured it was a good candidate for restoration since it had not "survived" and can no longer be considered a survivor.  I went through several ideas in my mind and they all slowly morphed into what you see here.

This style frame is one of my favorites because it's what I rode the majority of my skatepark years in the 80's and 90's (only mine was chrome).  It was fun to finally get one and use as a canvas to play with paint and decals.  See the progress from start to finish here:
