1996 GT Verigo
"Mint" Black N Chrome and 100% Original
100% Originally equipped GT Vertigo with mint black paint and chrome. This bike is in amazing condition and features all GT components. It was just never ridden and still has factory grease. This bike has never even been taken apart! The drops are perfect, the components are perfect. A rare find.
I run a side gig called Whistle Bikes. Last week, Gerry Kraynick, from Pittsburgh's legendary Kraynick's Bike Shop, called me and said, "He Jay. I have a bike that might make you whistle."
I stopped by and we negotiated a deal for the GT. It wasn't until I got home that I realized just how clean, almost perfect, this bike was. Amazing. The tires are even perfect which is so rare. At any rate, the bike sale benefitted the Christmas Bike Program for kids that Kraynick's runs every year in partnership with the local Salvation Army. Part of the deal was that I also owed Gerry two bikes for free as part of the donation program. I pieced back together a Panasonic 1987 MTB 20 that I had been using as a donor bike along with a 2004 Haro Mirra 360 pit bike. Glad to help the program and add another bike into the world of vintage BMX. Looking forward to this finding a good home.

- Details A bike from a major BMX conglomerate, before being affected by the rider owned era of mid school bikes; which changed everything. Essentially, this rig is not any different from the 1986 GT Freestylers; 1 inch headset, standing platforms, wafer thin drops. Bulldog brakes, 90's decals, super clean and 100% OG. YEAH!!!
