Re: 1987 GT Performer

i cant figure out why or how that gt stamp is upside down that to me is puzzling! did you discover a rare frame or was that done after the original stamp, i like to hear if you have any information on it, thanx piznall712

:lol:  thats awesome.....I had the same model  88 next to that 87 in my garage the whole time it was here!

Came out sweet too....nice bike and cool the wife wanted one too!  I bought my wife a bike....she never rode it....we sold it at a yard sale brand new condition 2 years ago. Our teenage kid was hit bad by a car on a bike though....she'll never come around about it though it seems. She'll never trust bikes even though it was the driver not the bike. Ive been a racer and flatlander since I first saw a bike ...been a track builder and director as  an adult  and so many firends in bikes ......I cant get it out of my blood that easy. Niether did my son for that matter!  Broken neck, broken arm and broken leg from that accident, he's 18 made a full recovery from it , been out of the wheelchair  for a couple years now and racing expert again by his own free will. :)  It had a good ending for the things that REALLY matter in life like health and your body, but my wife wont ride a bike :(    She buys purses and shoes instead....much safer ! :lol:
