1993 GT Performer

Mid school dressed up as old school

I acquired the bike as a bare frame and fork thrown in as part of a complete bike purchase. Not knowing what to do with it and having never built a bike from parts nor restoring one, I decided to just copy a performer from the 86 catalog.
I found a spray paint can that closely matched the GT purple and painted the F/F that color. Then came the scavenger hunt to find the parts to complete the bike. I found most of them here in the museum.
I am very happy with the bike, it rides great, and does look a little like the old school bike I wanted it to look like.

You don't HAVE to build every frame and fork you own... right?

Re: 1993 GT Performer

Yes, you are right, I am about to do that. I have two sets of mags and I accidentally mounted the tires on the ones I didn't paint the black GT back on.
Next on the list of things to do. smile

Re: 1993 GT Performer

Thank you all for the nice comments. Funny thing is this was my very first bike build. I didnt even know what the parts ( BB, Head set, etc) were called. In fact I didn't remove the cups to paint the bike. Live and learn.
