1993 GT Performer

Bike my Dad bought me back in 1993

Soooo, this is this second "good" bike my parents bought me back in '93, if I would have known better I would have just kept my '92 PFT, but oh well. I still have it and it just went through it's second redo.

And this is the results of the first redo, notice the decals on the frame washed out with the black, that kind of ruiend it for me but I lived with it for a while.

And here is the results of the second and LAST redo, I absolutely love it. I wanted an 80's look and I think I got it right this time. (inspired by a few in the museum).

Re: 1993 GT Performer

Instant fave.  I'm building an 89 Performer with somewhat of the same color scheme.  This, however, is outstanding.  Simply an awesome build.  How does this bike ride?

Re: 1993 GT Performer

I really like this bike man, You did a fine job on it!
I had an 85 performer which was my one and only "good" bike back then, and these later model frames are starting to grow on me, and this one is a beauty.
