1987 GT Performer

This my first build and my rider...enjoy

After 25 years of being out of the sport, I jumped back in wanting to build a bike I can ride every day and looks clean.  Everything is era correct and restored with the exception of some new school components.  Almost every piece of this bike was bought from members here who have all been instrumental in this build from start to finish.  The first time I hopped on, I felt like I was back in 1987 and the tricks started coming back to me!  It's a blast to ride!

Re: 1987 GT Performer

instant fave!  This is a fantastic build.  My first one getting back into it years ago, was also an 87 performer.   You've done a great job here.  Soooo clean in black and white.  Very nice.
