1999 GT Fueler

1999 GT Fueler

ALL original 99' GT Fueler_minus the grips

I got this bike on here, reasonably priced, and it's in much better condition than i thought in the first place smile
Grips were dry and to be honest: rotten, so i replaced them with a set of WTP grips i had laying around for now.
As usual, the SUPER-7X rims are pitted, but not flaking yet.
If the rims were not actually pitted, it could definitely pass for a mint bike!
The good part is that the original decals are all there, 95% intact for a 13 year old bike! TIME Machine smile
Gotta love it!!


I still remember the days when Mike Parenti (GT Team rider) rode the very same beast at the X-Games and not only.
John Parker also rode a Fueler.


Current upgrades:
- GT steel bar ends in 25.4mm (nos)
- Aluminium dropout washers that were found on the Mohawk Elite series "race" hubs (nos)
Future upgrades will include:
- A set of GT OverDrive (Drive-Shaft) 3pc cranks in 180mm
- GT USA Piston XL stem, in polished
- GT Overdrive Light USA-Made sprocket, in black anno

* Frame: GT Fueler 100% 4130 Cr-Mo, USA made, CNC'ed head tube and Bottom Bracket, serial number on the left dropout reads: 09980412

* Bars: GT "FUBAR" bars, 4130 Cr-Mo, full 25.4mm/1'' diameter bars

Re: 1999 GT Fueler

Sweet looking bike and very clean. I missed out on picking up a similar one but in light blue locally last year.

Re: 1999 GT Fueler

Thanks smile

I found it on here,there was a garage sale...i saw it, and was covered in dust..and said to myself 'what do you have to lose?'
And it turned out to be in a very good condition !

The one you found should have been a 2000 Fueler...they were the very same bikes except for the colour.


Now i'm looking out for the last year's Fueler, a 2001
