My Latest find... Rare Minty Original Suurvivor Midschool Inside

Here is my latest find, a 1991 US made GT Pro Series XL that I picked uo last week off of the Bay and did a through cleaning and restoration on it.  I kept this bike 100% factory original parts, even down to the spokes and nipples.  I dont know how many of you have tried to restore rusty SS spokes to this kind of bling, it is not an easy task. But like I said, I wanted to keep this girl completely factory original parts.  It came from Texas, so all of the grease in it had dried to a very annoying, sticky paste on everything. 

She turned out great and Im happy she's inside of the hobby now.  Enjoy the shots,I hope you have some glasses handy because she's a blingy one!

Re: My Latest find... Rare Minty Original Suurvivor Midschool Inside

This bike is 100% factory original, including the decals. The only decals that are even slightly faded are the chain stay decals, which I think we're originally dayglo orange. I've found it really hard to locate other bikes with this decal set on them, so I'm not dead sure.

I've been trying to find pics of Gary riding one of these, but this is also during the dark ages Of bmx so it's hard to find a lot.

To restore these spokes I wet sanded them, buffed them extremely carefully on a wheel and then did the whole Mothers polish/toilet paper routine... A lot of work but they came out amazing.

Basically I just Wanted to preserve this as much as possible. I think that's a huge part of this hobby; the preservation of this stuff. It would've been easy for me to just replace the rims with new spokes, in my mind it's much cooler to keep this 100% factory original.

Very cool... I'm going to have to track down a 92 catalog. I have a 91 and a 93 but no 92.

The bikes build date is actually 0791 so that's why I assumed 91.  That or they didn't change a thing on the frame and just restickered them.

What a great find.  Looks like it just rolled out of the bike shop.  So tough to find a 20+ year old bike this nice.  Congrats!
