1996 GT Performer
Here we have a fully restored 1996 GT Performer. Got her on E-Bay about 4 years ago, and restored her with brand new NOS parts, about 95% period correct for that year.
Things I've done:
All new factory original decals.
Original mag reflectors, these were hard to find, everyone who got this bike when it was new took them right off and threw them in the trash.....myself included ;)
Original GT tires (never mounted) these are from the late 80's, but never the less, still original.
All new NOS 1/2 inch Original GT pedals.
All new NOS GT clear grips, now the ones that I have on her now go on a GT mountain bike from the same time period, but finding the original clear GT grips from this year, and this model is quite impossible....
That's pretty much it, I've tried to keep her all original.
I'll tell you one thing though, much like an antique car, when people see this bike rolling down the street, some stare, and some just want to talk about it. Either way I LOVE THIS BIKE :)
