1994 GT Performer

The Brother's GT's

I responded to some really low res pics in a KSL ad while living in SLC and picked this Performer up with it's brother.  The other bike is a very nice GT Interceptor from the same year.  I saw a nice chrome frame and was interested.  This one wasn't even advertised.  I decided to buy it in the end and am now really happy that I did.  After cleaning off 10 years of nasty, it came out really nice.  It turns out that the two GT's were Christmas presents for the seller and his brother.  Even better, about a month after I bought them, my brother came down from Boise for a visit.  We took the two GT's out bombing around downtown SLC that weekend.  It was too cool!  This bike feels so similar to my '87 it's scary.  I'm not a fan of the mags though, they feel heavy and the ride just isn't as nice.  We traded bikes half way and the Interceptor was even better!  Although they are midschool, these two GT's are really special and to me, are just as valuable as my '87 PFTT.  I had brief thoughts of doing a dayglo retro when I first got this one, but not now.  The bike is totally original except for the front brake and that's the way I'm going to leave it!  This pair of GT's is also what brought me back to BMX and lead me to the BMX Museum.

I've been trying to get my hands on one of these for a while...and I'm in SLC! Very jealous! I had this bike when I was 14 so I've been on a mission to restore one. Nice job!

No kidding?  Don't tell me that you or your brother live in Magna....I sneaked out of work for an extra long lunch to get these babies.  It was definitely worth the trip.  They didn't look like much at first do to the years or grease and dirt on them, but the cleaned up really well.  They had no damage, rust, etc.  I literally tore them apart, cleaned everything off, waxed them, repacked the bearings and reassembled them over the weekend.  Tires, grips, and cables were all in good condition.  If I recall I kept the old pads but put new ones on.  I love my brakes dialed in and ready to lock up.  Keep an eye out on KSL.  There were definitely more bikes on there than CL at the time I bought these.  Good luck on your search.  Minus the mags, this bike is every bit as nice as the 80's performers in my opinion, not to mention, considerably cheaper!smile  Thanks for the comments guys.
