1990 GT Vertigo

It glows!

I changed it. I built this bike orange and white.  I didn't feel it so I took it apart and had the F/F/B/P for sale. Nobody bought it, so I put it back together with black parts.

It has GT 3rd gen frame standers, Dia compe levers and odyssey brakes. Very simple bike and I like it.

 

 

This was an experiment with a F/F I got for cheap in the museum. I used Krylon neon orange over a white base coat, then covered it in Dupont 2 part clear coat. I installed Primo Hollow bite cranks with GT pedals. The bottom bracket was sanded and polished, I didn't like the black anodizing on it. The bars are 90's GT bars and the post is also a GT block letter logo. The gyro cables were refreshened with Vinyl paint which sticks like nobody's business. I am very impressed on how strong and flexible that paint is. I also felt like using some fork standers I got from a memeber here in the forum rather than the usual GT standers. The brakes are Diacompe bulldog, the rear was the rarer freestlyle type with the black plastic platform. I got the decals from Dynocrazy on ebay about a year or so ago. The decals are nice, the white is translucent so it looks more like pink than white, but I am OK with that.

 

This is not a bike for someone like me who does not like to be the center of attention. You WILL get noticed with a paint job like that. Other than that, super nice bike, I love the geometry, it just fits me well.
