Re: 1987 GT pro freestyle tour TEAM MODEL, project

Love the "pics as you go" on your build.  You have inspired me on my 87' PFT build.  Couple of questions though?  Maybe you or someone would know this, but on the 87' PFT, what originally was the chainring/powerdisc setup?  I was a HARO guy then and can't remember.  I have seen the two parts as Sugino or GT wing stamped or combination of the two, anyone know?  Finally, any suggestions on where to locate the Gt stamped chainring bolts other than the usual constant watch for new parts on this site?

Re: 1987 GT pro freestyle tour TEAM MODEL, project

Hey Sticky,

This is how I do it.  Remove the cable housing and run the bare cable through the top hole first then bottom.  It should go through fairly easy.  Just make sure the end isn't frayed so it won't catch on anything.  Pull the cable all the way through until it’s stopped by the splitter, then start running the bare cable back into the housing.  The housing will ride along the bare cable through the bottom hole then the top.  You can then adjust how much of the housing you want to see coming out of the top and bottom holes.  Hope that makes sense.

Re: 1987 GT pro freestyle tour TEAM MODEL, project

a guy on ebay regularly sells chainright bolts NOS in bag for around 20 dollars. 

the disc and chainring i pictured would be stock on a PFT with one piece crank, and the team model has the same disc/chainring but a 3 piece crank.

One more question, any idea on a bike such as the one you post on this thread would be worth?  Or a realistic sell price?  Would it be worth more as a complete bike or parted out?

a bike such as what you see here does not come up for sale often.  condition reflects price and you see how every parts is like new so its gonna be worth more. you have to have all the correct parts,  one or 2 parts different can greatly affect the value.

here i just sold this,  every part is same condition and very similar bike, you can see the price, had it not sold complete it would have been parted out 15 minutes later cause every part had been dibbed,  so part for part its was 400 more actually.   http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=403396

oh and a set of cranks just sold for about $900  dated 87 and in decent shape.  have a look at mine on page one.  my pro compe listing i was going to get 600 for them but probably could have asked more after just today checking how that auction ended. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi … &rt=nc

Re: 1987 GT pro freestyle tour TEAM MODEL, project

Thank you for answering my questions so quick.  I was admiring that listing last weekend when you posted it.  That setup was awesome!  Another question, of course.  I purchased a set of the power series cranks 88', with the usual scuffing, no dings or deep scratches and polished them with an Alumimum polishing kit.  Spent about 1.5 hours on each on my drill press and they came out nice and shiny, even better with the new decals.  Your pic of the cranks in this string appear more of a matte Alumimum finish, yet the pics from the Dyno appear more polished, similar result of mine after polishing.  Again, too many years and beers gone by to remember the original finish.

I love looking at you guy's perfect builds. I love the attention to detail. I'm going to try to get as close to perfect as possible with mine too. But, $890 for used Power Series Cranks with what looks to be the wrong repop decals is just insane... makes my recent brand new Primo Powerbite crank set purchase taste all the sweeter. I can't justify riding something that, when scuffed, depreciates hundreds of dollars.

Anyway, your builds are awesome and inspiring and the Dyno was SICK! cool
