1987 GT Performer

The type of build that will make this hobby what its all about..

So, many of you already know that my son built an 87 GT Performer last year. It was a crazy red/yellow color combo. I really didn't think that it was gonna work. Well, he finished it and i thought it turned out so killer. So i decided to make the same bike, except in the opposite arrangement. The same red/yellow combo, but flipped. The bikes are nearly identical, flipped. This is the one bike in my collection I will never sell just just because it symbolizes what this hobby is about. 87 GT Performer F/F bars (paint by Lou, thanks bro) New Dia Compe Tech 77 levers New Kenda Kontact Tires New GT power series OPC Refirbed Dia Compe center pull brake Refirbed Odyssey front brake Refirbed Odyssey Gyro NOS Tioga CD chainring NOS Tioga Maxflo disc NOS Izumi chain NOS Metal flanged skyway Tuff II's in Red NOS GT mallet stem NOS Oakley F1 grips NOS Viscount MX seat in Red This is by far my favorite bike for many reasons.

Re: 1987 GT Performer

Been looking at your bike caezaer, the pic of the 2 together is awesome.  The 80s gave us the freedom to do whatever we wanted with color.

Re: 1987 GT Performer

I love the Yellow and red!  What Yellow is that? It's got more POP than the GT Yellow.

Nice!

Ketchup and mustard! Really unique!


If your trying to sell something don’t expect me to make YOU an offer. Come up with a price and then we go from there.
