Old school meets new school. 1987 GT Pro Performer frame,bars and post hooked up to a new school 1 1/8 GT fork. 990s all around, stops on a dime. The mixed breed HS works great. Decals by Ultrahive....Enjoy!

WOW! Didn't think a raw PP frame could look this cool. Especially with a New School Gt Fork! Great build

Re: 1987 GT Pro Performer

Nicely done with raw looks and the 1-1/8'' forks!

I would have gone with Pacman forks though tongue
Stands out from the crowd, good work for sure.

It was easy. I used aircraft stripper to remove to old paint. Hit it with steel wool then sprayed it with a Matte clear coat. I used a clear coat for car wheels as its very durable and available at any auto parts store.

Re: 1987 GT Pro Performer

How did you get the 1 1/8 fork there? Sick bike, by the way!


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

Re: 1987 GT Pro Performer

Sweet build! I have a very similar bike. On mine I sourced a fork from a 90's Dyno that uses 990 mounts on a 1" threaded steerer tube so I was able to keep the stock stem. Also ChattyMatty on this forum sells a machined down conversion headset that works amazingly well.


I don't bother chasing mice around.
