1987 GT used a Viscount 2123 model. Only for one year this model seat was used. In 1988 they switched to Viscount 2188.

To be era correct you need 2123. If you are mimicking the GT catalog from 1987 then you need the 1986 seat which they had on the bikes as the catalog is photographed deep into the previous year of bike release.

Do GT frame standers just not fit the frames properly? It seems like there's always a huge gap between the brace and the chainstay on the majority of the restored bikes here.

they do fit but you have to slide the half round front on all the way first before you put the axle nuts on.   the back part that gets bolted down will be springing away from the frame.  alot of these frame have slight dents where the front parts is.  see the chainstay tubing on these frames is a larger diameter.  if the tube was a bit thinner there would be no issue..     the reason i dont put them on like im telling you to is because i dont want to chip the finish..

these frame standers came out long before this model frame, so they should fit most other bikes unless they have that larger tubing also.

I had the same issue.  Scratched my frame.  See here:
