Re: 1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour Team

Just updated the pics with some of my recent upgrades
- i built the GT Superlace wheels (w/ chrome UKAI's) and replaced the Peregrines.
- added some nice GT Tires
- 87 Bars

I just need to put a chain and Handlebar sticker on it.

Thanks Fuse,
Just realized I hadn't posted up any old pics of the bike in the comments section of this bike.

Here she is in 1989 at Woodward with some fresh Q-bars.

Unbelievably awesome GT. And you look so young in your newer photos, like the ones on your Franken-Kuwi. How old are you??? lollol

Crazy jealous. cool


When I bunnyhop I hear a creak and I don't know if it's my bike or my joints. Oh well.

Have you been to my apartment in Philly?
You might have it mistaken for a different GT.

But thank you for the compliment.

The bike is actually complete with the correct pedals and all now. I need to update the pics badly.
