Custom GT Builds! Post Them Here! Let's See What You Got!!!

I've seen so many "Custom" GT's over the last couple of years that have been built.  So many awesome creations that members have come up with.  From custom colors to custom decals to custom details, if that's you post  your "Custom GT" here in this thread so we can take look at 'em!  I thought it would be cool to see all the "Custom GT's" in one thread. 

I'll start with my creation of a 91' Performer made into a 88' PFT.  smile

If you have a link to the work that you did along the way please post the link so we can check it out!!!  smile

Re: Custom GT Builds! Post Them Here! Let's See What You Got!!!

I'll use this as an excuse to post my GT again.  It's definitely a "custom build".  I bought it as a F&F in '84 and it went through many incarnations between then and '87.  Everything done by me including the wheel building.  Not a thing has been changed or even wrenched on since '87.

Aint another one like it...  smile
Here is an 84 GT Pro (production date 1/84....and does not have the bologna cut on the back end top tube).  Nora Cup sticker was on the f/f when I got it.
I built this up how I invisioned it.....GT Pro series stem, 92ish GT stamped Robi Pro Bars, GT Stamped profiles, ukais, NOS gt tires, Tech 7 level, White 901, etc.

May change up the grips or seat...break up the white some.

Thermal count is rising, In perpetual writhing. The primordial ooze, And the sanity they lose. Awakened in the morning, To more air pollution warnings. Still we sleepwalk off to work, While our nervous systems jerk. Pretending not to notice, How history had forebode us. With the green house in effect, Our environment was wrecked. Now, I can only laugh, As I read our epitaph. We end our lives as moles, In the dark of DAWN PATROL

Fail.
While this is a nice bike, it is a factory reproduction/restoration.  Not a custom.  No imagination.


Always looking for "t" gusset Takaras- Frames, frame sets, or completes.  Also any Odyssey 2000 brakes/parts(the cross-drilled ones)-Sets, orphan handles and calipers, just about anything.
