1985 Duracycle Spinner

This is an 'As Found' Duracycle Spinner.

This is a GT Performer Clone, most likely a Chinese/Taiwanese knockoff.
There have been a few 'what is this frame' posts, so hopefully this will help others identify their GT clones.
Since there were none others listed, I had to post it up (and hope it's not the 30,000 entry!)
Way back in the 80's, someone added the Skyway Tuff IIs
Front Tuff II, Rear Tuff II w/ Flange & Suntour Coaster.
'MX' brakes, the rear one is especially usefull given the coaster brake hub.
Aquila Rotor
Wellgo plastic pedals.
Freestyle seat - Dominator clone
Chrome seatpost - looks like GT minus stamping plus rust
Shiny seatpost clamp
Skyway brake pads - in white!
Aftermarket standers.
Definitely not Oakley grips minus the jackets (and ends).
Factory chain guard!!
After a little research, appears the frame standers are Mike Dominquez Products (for Hutch) knock-offs.
There's already a discussion post about this 'rare score'
