1988 GT Performer

Party Performer!

I bought this off of Barney the dinosaur because he needed money for whiskey.
Got the f/f/bars from jayoldmanbmx, rreekie hooked up the mags (NOS) and I pieced everything else together. spent 4 hours removing black spraypaint and original white paint, had it powdered kawasaki green with sparkles so when the sun hits it BANG! DynoMike hooked up the GT headset. Psychoduddy hooked up the levers. I love the 2 purples and green combo. Thanks to Bigclemboski for the custom stickers. My first complete show bike from the ground up!

Re: 1988 GT Performer

thanks again for the mags Ray glad you like the final product. the powder is so thick i couldnt put the framestanders on the back. The DB just needs wheels and brakes so hopefully soon you and jay can show me how its done on the track. look at you two bmx masters each on the verge of 600 posts.

Re: 1988 GT Performer
