1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour Team Model

Ridin' Red

This is a 1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour Team Model. This is a custom build shown in brilliant red. This was the bike I could only dream about as a kid. 20+ years later, I built my own with a custom twist. I enjoy doing custom builds so this was a real fun project.  Some parts here are NOS, and some parts were restored.  Here's how it breaks down...

- 1987 GT PFT Frame/Forks/Bars
- Tech 7 brake levers
- SR GT Mallet stem
- A'me Krayton grips
- GT Epoch headset
- Odyssey Gyro (NOS)
- Nippon front brake
- GT 43t chainring
- GT Power disc
- GT Power Series 3pc cranks
- SR 474 pedals
- GT seat clamp
- Viscount GT seat (NOS)
- Dia Compe 990 rear brake
- GT Superlace hubs (NOS) sealed bearings
- Ukai rims (NOS)
- GT fork standers
- GT freestyle tread tires (NOS)
- Frame standers

puncho - you hit it right on the head man.  as a kid, i always modified and customized my bikes.  i still do that even with my cars today.  catalog correct builds are truly classics.  you cannot beat those restos.  but i just choose to build my bikes the way i would've done it as a kid.  so i just build them and have fun with it.  it's like being a kid again... smile

thanks Rivi!  would like to check out your red one.  post pics when you get a chance. 

also, Chad hooked me up with an 87 43T ring.  but i'd still like to check yours out since it's already powdered.

Wow, I looked at this bike for quite a while at the OSBMX show and believe me, as good as these pics are, they do it little justice.  One of the best out there imo, yikes
