Re: 1984 GT Pro

one the nicest GTs i've seen in a while!
we have similar taste.
is it a super early 84? looks to be earlier but i've seen so many GT anomalies that an 84 serial number wouldn't surprise me.

They did make these Nora frames through January of 84, so an 84 serial doesnt surprise me either. wink

Re: 1984 GT Pro

it's always fun to look at the old catalogs. i they'll find an 84 or 85 catalog to post.
definitely stickered up like pre 83 but i cant tell if the toptube is angled or not and it appears as if there are holes in the dropouts.

Re: 1984 GT Pro

Even the 86 has the same stickers the frameset is on page 9. I bet they made the same framesets in 84 and 85.

Re: 1984 GT Pro

Isnt that what you have it listed as, an 84 GT Pro that came as a frameset? Im just agreeing with that.

Re: 1984 GT Pro

it was bought new in France in 84 as a frameset+bars+seat tube, here it was called the "GT4 kit", GT4 because 4 parts

just because the frameset has the old decals doesn't mean it's the old style frame. take a close look at the catalog, the dropouts have holes in them. also, the end of the toptube isn't visible in the catalog shot.
it makes sense that GT would use the OG stickers on their framesets because it's not a particular bike model (ie pro series, mach one, etc) but i really doubt that they'd keep making the old style frames.

the overlap (like frdavid's bike) makes total sense to me but to prove your assertion i'd have to see an 85 or 86 OG frame (no holes in the dropouts, no slanted toptube, and no stamp) with plenty of pics and SN.

Re: 1984 GT Pro

This is a stunning build, congratulations.

Was this your frameset from 84?

Re: 1984 GT Pro

no not mine, when i came back to bmx races in 2006 i met a guy who used to race with me in 1986, he told me that he still had his GT f&f, i didn't ask anything but last year after seeing all my restored bikes and fed up to see that his f&f was rusty, he gave me it , but condition was to not sell it and restored it as the other bikes i have, it's done!

Re: 1984 GT Pro

Theres a lot of talk about holes in drop outs and slanted ends on top tubes but surely everyone must know its all in the serial number as I'm sure we have all seen weird variations of GT frames. Pro frames from 83 and 84 had a 4 stamped into the rear dropout also. Thats one fine looking pro series you got there frdavid. Just finishing my pro rebuild. Cant wait to get the photos up.

Re: 1984 GT Pro

I thought that 83 and older Pro's did not have a slant in the the end toptube and some early 84's ,like this one. 84 and older had the slant in the top tube , but like i said i have seen quite a few early 84 serial numbers where there is no slant in the top tube , this is the ruke of thumb i have always gone by , i may be wrong though. Awesome build , i love the color match with the blue!!!!
