Re: 1985 GT Pro Performer

Thanks and worth every penny, phillyc. The 84/85 GT Pro Performers were such an influential freestyle bike for me as a younger rider growing up in the 80's. During the build, i couldn't WAIT to work on the next part. cool

Re: 1985 GT Pro Performer

I thought 85 pro performers had the 3 hole rear dropouts.

Re: 1985 GT Pro Performer

I started to build this exact bike awhile back, then needed the $ and sold off all the parts before I could finish it. Nice to see it here, just the way I wanted to do it. Amazing. Great accomplishment, great bike!
