Re: 1983 GT Pro

Yeah that's a beauty! That candy blue with the touch of gold looks great. I'm such a sucker for blue builds lol. I'm also a goose guy so those pro class rims look sweet on there.

Re: 1983 GT Pro

Man that came out sweet. You know what I love about this bike, It a real bike. Back in the 80's when I was still racing, nobody and I mean nobody raced factory spec bikes. Everyone changed out the stem to DK or Tuf Neck, everyone threw away the factory pedals unless you bought a Pro Star. Wheels were custom built and tires were changed. Cranks were replaced and Uni Turbo seats were popular as well to save weight. Not to mention the grips, this is a real racer with the upgrades we all did at the time. All these blingy factory true bikes just werent raced at the tracks I raced at in northern California. You hit the colors right on and the parts are aces for sure. Well done:)


Ummmmm..........Yeah.

Re: 1983 GT Pro

Thanks so much everyone for the kind words. Built as I like it.
I've always loved 83 GTs and Pro Class Wheels so this was my dream bike when I was 14. :)
It's been done for a while, I've just been waiting for decent weather and time to take photos.
Yeah, it wasn't very cheap lol.
