1998 GT Interceptor

Glows-in-the-dark frame paint...Nephew's Birthday bike.

I built this up for my nephew, for his 11th birthday. His house had a furnace fire a month before his birthday, and he lost his pet cat, so I thought a custom bike was what I could do for him. This will be his first ever non-coaster bike, a freewheeling bike he's sure to never forget. This Interceptor has his name stamped into the rear drop-out, on the non-drive side, "J.HARRINGTON", a custom touch he's sure to point out to all his friends. Custom Glow-in-the-dark paint, it's that stuff from Rust Oleum, topped in clear. Home crafted decals look decent, they bring a lot to it's presentation, especially the jumbo coin sprocket decal.
