1983 Apollo Hallmark 26

GT 26" 'tribute' bike

Here is my Apollo 26" BMX which is pretty much a copy of the GT Cruiser. Not sure on the history too much of when these where built and any fallout from copying the GT design. Originally the bike had three holes above the rear dropouts in a kuwahara style but I have had mine filled. All Hi-Ten steel and weighs a ton. 

First photo is how it looked like when I first got it mid 2009... there has been some changes since.

***Replaced red chain with a black/chrome one and updated the pics***

Nice restore, who did the paint job for you?  I think I would have gone with a plain black or chrome chain.  Nice looking bike.

Re: 1983 Apollo Hallmark 26

I tried putting on a chrome and black chain but when resizing it I broke my chain breaker... I got stuck in the chain and I stuffed the thread so could not wind it out! Went to my LBS and bought a  cheapo chain breaker but the original chain would not fit. This red and black KMC chain as skinnier so it could - so that's why I used it. I am not sure I like the chain but I wanted to finish the bike. I reckon I'll swap it out soon.

Replaced the dodgy red chain and re-did the pictures. Bit overcast today so the photos show the colour a lot better.
