***MONSTER BIKE SCORE!! GT AGGRESSOR MUTANT And A Good Deed****

So there was a CL add with a strange description about a GT racing bike for $125. He had a pic of a performer F/F and then a pic of a complete Mach 1. Also had a pic of OGK mags and a set of Superlace wheels. I responded and a young man calls me later about the bike. He tells me it was his uncles bike that was handed down to him. He says his uncle spent a $1,000 on it back in the day.  Then tells me he is selling it so he can buy a new BMX because his 2 month old Walmart bike broke already (crank snapped). He says its just like the performer F/F in the pic and the complete is what its supposed to look like when its together. I could tell he had it wrong so I told him to send me a cell pic of it. He said somone just came to see the bike and told him he would give him $20 for it but he told the guy no thanks figuring it was worth more than that. The guy did buy the mags for $10 though mad  I got the pics and told him DO NOT sell that for $20. I asked him how old he was since I could tell he was young. Tells me he is 13 and I ask him if his parents know that he is tring to sell the bike. He says yes. So after talking with him he seemed like a really nice young man who needs a REAL BMX. I wanted to help him and after I got there and talked to him some more I deff was gonna help him. He tells me he was bullied really bad in school and this is his first year of home schooling. And all the kids in his neighborhood that he told about the home schooling were making fun of him and telling him he's not gonna learn all kinds of stuff and how to be cool. So then he tells me he is gonna show all of them and learn how to ride BMX real good. I was so impressed with is attitude. I told him don't worry about those kids. You have a great head on his shoulders and your gonna be just fine.  I asked him if he had been to Rays before and he said no but had heat about it. And has been wanting to go. So I sat with him and asked what kind of riding he wants to learn and tried to teach him some things about bikes since he is looking at buying a used BMX off CL. I explained TT lenght and the differences between street frames and race frames. I didn't want to see him end up with the wrong bike for him. So I told him to go get his mom since she hadn't come out yet. I talked with her and invited her to bring him to Rays on a Sunday BMX night and I would teach him some things on the bike after he gets a new one. She was very appreciative. So while we were standing there he says I know I probably won't get what I'm asking for but how much do you think? I asked him what his asking price was again and after he said $125 I handed him $200. His eyes lit up and his mom was very thankful. I told him to keep in touch and that I would try to help him locate a bike that wil fit him. He says that he has the Spin Tech parts that are missing at his grandmas house and will get them for me. So it was a cool score and I was glad to help the kid out. So here are the pics. It's a mix of parts. I am not sure what the fork is on it. It has nice welds and looks well made. Any info on the fork is appreciated.

The forks appear to have a combination of Boss and CW atributes. Mainly the top bends of the forks look like the Boss stuff I've seen, but the drops look like CW stuff. With that said I'm a race guy who dabbles in freestyle up to '85

I'm 100% positive that someone with far more knowledge will chime in. wink

Rad story , I've done the same with kids and skateboarding and it feels awesome . Good things sometimes do come from Cleveland . cool

I'd say post the pegs/fork in the S&M Hoarder thread , those guys are nice and can answer for you . If I remember right , go back a page or 2 and a guy has a set of those pegs NOS , in the box and took pictures of them .

Re: ***MONSTER BIKE SCORE!! GT AGGRESSOR MUTANT And A Good Deed****

It actually had a rare set of decals put on it that just do not go...but those are the neon yellow for a black frame.  Hard to find.  Are they gloss black or matte black background?  Matte would have been aggressor, shiny would have been PFT...not that it matters now


If you want to sell a 1991 GT bicycle, do not contact me!  Okay well, maybe just hint at what you have for sale, but don't offer it to me....well if you have no other people interested....ah what the hell, I want all of them.

Re: ***MONSTER BIKE SCORE!! GT AGGRESSOR MUTANT And A Good Deed****

I did this so I can read it.

So there was a CL add with a strange description about a GT racing bike for $125. He had a pic of a performer F/F and then a pic of a complete Mach 1. Also had a pic of OGK mags and a set of Superlace wheels. I responded and a young man calls me later about the bike. He tells me it was his uncles bike that was handed down to him. He says his uncle spent a $1,000 on it back in the day.  Then tells me he is selling it so he can buy a new BMX because his 2 month old Walmart bike broke already (crank snapped).

He says its just like the performer F/F in the pic and the complete is what its supposed to look like when its together. I could tell he had it wrong so I told him to send me a cell pic of it. He said somone just came to see the bike and told him he would give him $20 for it but he told the guy no thanks figuring it was worth more than that. The guy did buy the mags for $10 though   I got the pics and told him DO NOT sell that for $20. I asked him how old he was since I could tell he was young. Tells me he is 13 and I ask him if his parents know that he is tring to sell the bike. He says yes. So after talking with him he seemed like a really nice young man who needs a REAL BMX.

I wanted to help him and after I got there and talked to him some more I deff was gonna help him. He tells me he was bullied really bad in school and this is his first year of home schooling. And all the kids in his neighborhood that he told about the home schooling were making fun of him and telling him he's not gonna learn all kinds of stuff and how to be cool. So then he tells me he is gonna show all of them and learn how to ride BMX real good. I was so impressed with is attitude. I told him don't worry about those kids. You have a great head on his shoulders and your gonna be just fine.  I asked him if he had been to Rays before and he said no but had heat about it. And has been wanting to go. So I sat with him and asked what kind of riding he wants to learn and tried to teach him some things about bikes since he is looking at buying a used BMX off CL.

I explained TT lenght and the differences between street frames and race frames. I didn't want to see him end up with the wrong bike for him. So I told him to go get his mom since she hadn't come out yet. I talked with her and invited her to bring him to Rays on a Sunday BMX night and I would teach him some things on the bike after he gets a new one. She was very appreciative. So while we were standing there he says I know I probably won't get what I'm asking for but how much do you think? I asked him what his asking price was again and after he said $125 I handed him $200. His eyes lit up and his mom was very thankful. I told him to keep in touch and that I would try to help him locate a bike that wil fit him.

He says that he has the Spin Tech parts that are missing at his grandmas house and will get them for me. So it was a cool score and I was glad to help the kid out. So here are the pics. It's a mix of parts. I am not sure what the fork is on it. It has nice welds and looks well made. Any info on the fork is appreciated.


You don't HAVE to build every frame and fork you own... right?
