1985 GT Mach One

This build started with great base as you can see in the last picture.
Wanted to do something a little differant so I chose to go with the 85-86 GT Lavander and I think it came out great.
Added a few pics to the comment section smile

Re: 1985 GT Mach One

Very good job on this build. I really think the lavender looks killed on it. Only thing I don't like is the sprocket but I have never been a fan of those.

Re: 1985 GT Mach One

Love the bike. You did a really great job. I am in the process of building a lavender/purple '85 GT, too. I was wondering, when you powdered the stem, were you able to keep the original brush "GT", or did you have to redo it? How did you do what you did?
