1985 GT Pro World Tour

1985 USA GT Pro World Tour

1985 USA GT Pro World Tour
Complete with FS stamp on the left rear drop out. Picked up this fork and frame from another member. When I got it, it was totally trashed. The metal was rusty, 75% of the paint was missing and it had quite a few dings in it. The original color was green and Ive decided to keep it with the original color. Took a few days of searching to come up with the correct paint code for the green and a few weeks or searching to find the tires. I actually found the tires before the frame so it all happened to just work out great. Once I dropped the frame off to the powdercoaters it then took him 3 weeks to get the powder and to finish it. In the mean time I collected my parts. In all it was about a 8 week process. Its not built right out of the catalog but I still like it. Parts list are as follows:
 
1985 USA GT Pro World Tour fork and frame
1985 GT bars (no crimping)
GT seat post (circle logo stamp)
1988 GT seat clamp
Viscount Dominator seat
Suntour 14t freewheel
white GT mags
Green GT tires
Specialized tubes
Spintech stem
AME round grips
Dia-compe Tech 77 levers
Dia-compe Nippon (front)
Dia-compe 901 rear
Skyway tuf pads
Takagi 180 cranks
Hsing pedals (to be swappedfor white MKS soon)
GT bottom bracket
GT power disc
GT chain disc
Deacls by ULTRAHIVE

Nice. Very cool bike. Great turn around time on it. I just missed this one when you bought it. Very nice frame set.big_smile

I have to settle for doing a green 86 Japan made Pro Performer next winter.
