2005 GHP Pro XL

Sold to WALAE1

My 2005 GHP Pro XL. Their are 2 of these frames, Mine and Alan's. Alan was Greg Hill's business partner in 2005 when he brought GHP back. I consider this a factory frame since it was never sold to the public and was made to the owner specs.
I knew I wanted to do a retro bike and what would be more perfect than an orange GHP. Alan also like the idea so he gave me two frames to have powdered. This isn't what you would call day glow like the original but I like it. Alan had given me a old school set of GHP decals a while back, and I took them and had repops made of them, but at a larger scale to fit the frame.
It's a mix of old, mid, and new school.

Well, looks like you finally got your GHP. Know you were wanting an older one but this one looks awsome.

Re: 2005 GHP Pro XL

Color, decals and the pads mainly set it apart. I was going for that 86/87 look. I take a lot of pride in the 100 that were made by Alan and Greg, since I did the initial cad drawings for the frames. Billy Griggs did the first one free hand, on his jig, with the measurements from Greg.

Here's BG with the frame.

And after powder and declas

Hey Shawn...I now own the sister to yours. Sweet ride. Told Alan that I would take good care of it and not going to change a thing.
