1986 GT JR Performer 16

1986 GT Junior Performer in lovely chrome that I had to soak in an OA bath to bring back to life. Small parts powdered by Chip @ C4. Built with my choice of parts to be ridden around the neighborhood on including sealed suzue 28h hubs, locking tech 77 levers, dia compe 880 calipers (coming soon), and sealed BB. Big thanks to Jays24 for hooking me up with this frame set, and to Chromey for helping me locate a set of replacement decals! Riding pics to come once it stops raining. smile

You're telling me!!!!!  I am so in love with it!  I do need to move the bars forward an inch or so, so I can stop hitting my knees. neutral

Always interested in 80s models Robinsons and ELFs. I will always make an offer. I collect square corner DK stems. So PM if you have some to get rid of OR if you need one for your build. I have ALL colors.

Want one of these for my kid badly! Not many out there, especially that need restoration, and I'm not dropping what guys are asking on a bike! Lol.

Beautiful gt man, very nice.

Re: 1986 GT JR Performer 16

Wow, looks great! I am picking up a complete okay condition JR Performer this Saturday. Any chance you can help me on what I should look for to be sure it's a legit and not a copy (serial number)? Thanks. I am getting it for my 4 year old son with plans to restomod it.
