1986 GT Pro Freestyle Tour

PFT
Anything but Original, and never was....

Got this one new in '87, alls they had at the shop was this lavender one for the money I had to spend. My Kuwi had just been stolen and I needed a new ride so....Brought it home and Immediately ditched the wheels (joytec, no names?) for Peregrines and black Odyessy barefeet. That seemed to necessitate junkin' all the white crap on it. I guess it lasted a day in it's original form. Gave it a good beatin' for a few years until I got tired of the purple. Got spray bombed camoflauge in '92 or so. It's had 4 or 5 repaints since then (whatever I felt like that year). Last one I did in'03. Just got it back after it did a coupla years hard time in my aunt's New Jersey basement (Thanks Kris). A lot of bikes have come and gone, and this one has always stuck around. In it's current incarnation the only thing original to the bike is the frame! Although I do have the forks, bars, and seat for it, I like it like this so, Purists no hatemail! hehe

Re: 1986 GT Pro Freestyle Tour

Haha, yeah I gotta trademark the 40oz caps in the pegs! My little cousin "lifted" the brakes and gyro off of this when I stored it at his house and destroted the levers, just waiting on my brand spankin' new tech-77's to come in the mail! :)

Re: 1986 GT Pro Freestyle Tour

I guess it time for an update on this.
This is the bike that gets rode hard and often, then put away dirty.

Pretty much how I rode it BITD and how it will die. Thanks to the people that led to the detruction.

Edit* Just noticed those pics suck. Eh, It's got the rider wheels on it anyway. I'll get 2fresh to teach me how to take pictures down by the lake in the sun.

Thanks. If I rode this bike the exact same way I bought it out of the LBS 20 years ago, I'd be a f'in poser. This thing was never OG and never will be.

Nice GT, the chrome rear tri angle ( ALA Haro / Redline is AWESOME )

Should be interesting to see how the devils do in the plyoffs.
