1996 GT Performer

I was looking through my Dads garage and found my Lil Brothers childhood bike. I know its nothing special but since its a family momento,I decided to restore it with as many NOS parts as possible

96 GT Performer F/F,NOS seat,NOS grips,NOS,seatclamp,NOS Pedals,NOS sprocket,mint GT 3spoke mags,cranks and brake system. All I need is a set of GT gumwalls ,Layback seatpost and  Decal set.

Re: 1996 GT Performer

Re: 1996 GT Performer

cant sell the 97 PFT ones ...i need those for if i ever find another 97 PFT like i used to have.  the two PFT decals are actually the ones off my 97 PFT i had but i used the new ones from the kit and relocated them up close to the headtube and i took the ones that were on my bike and put them on the backing paper from the new decals cause they were still in good shape
