Grail score! GT ultrabox cruiser

So I've had a WTB up for one of these for a while, just happen to be trolling fleabay and BAM! There it is, and even better one town away. I was like WTF? and offered a buy it now. After some negotiations I'm now the proud owner of this 1999 24'' Ultrabox. The owner was cool as hell and included the original stilettos and a set of S&M cruiser bars and FBM stem. I've done nothing too it but take it out for a cruise and damn is she sweet! It had been sitting in a garage for years so its dirty with some rust but no dents, repairs or issues at all other than some missing decals. Anyway the parts break down as it stands:

Shimano XTR brake and lever
Profile racing 180mm crank set w/ hop up and 40T hurricane chain wheel, not sure what the pedals are.
Thomson Elite seat post w/ SDG Satellite seat
GT 4 piece cruiser bars / w ODI lock on grips
S&M redneck stem
Chris king headset
Marzocchi sinister forks
Sun ringle BMU hops on Ringle A36 cassete hubs ( sealed cartridge I think )
GTAA race compound staggered tires

Re: Grail score! GT ultrabox cruiser

Nice Find,i missed out on one a few years ago on cl,i was first caller but the dude stalled and would not let me come right away for the asking price.then when i got a hold of him a few hours later he was taking best offer,so i said heck with it and bought a different bike.

Re: Grail score! GT ultrabox cruiser

Thanks everyone, I almost sh!t when I saw it! big_smile  Now I'm trying to figure out what the hell to do. GT Rhythm systems or the rims it came with? GT overdrive cranks or the profiles it came with?? THE DXR's or peregrine mad maxes?? This thing threw me a curve ball, any input?? keep it factory GT parts or aftermarket??

Like Snyderman said, that bike is packed to the gills with good stuff.  That BMDoubleU wheelset is way hard to find, and I've never seen the "Ringle" label on a set instead of "Sun Ringle".  I'd leave those on, throw on the Overdrives, and call it a day knowing that I have one of the baddest mid school cruisers around.  Congratulations!

Re: Grail score! GT ultrabox cruiser

That thing is sweet just the way it is! The Profile cranks are a nice upgrade. I would throw the S&M bars on it and some microknobbie tires and call it good.


Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

Thanks man, I looked for the rims in the reference section, Atilla's??  the label threw me off though. I'll tell you they spin like butter , engage good and are straight w/ almost no brake rub. The rhythms are nice but these are just plain sick and I'm thinking a little rarer seeing I have two sets of rhythms and have never seen the ringles. And I agree w/ the overdrives , I love the fit and finish of the bb spacers, a little heavy but nice. Appreciate your input cool

thanks, The profiles are pretty nice but the overdrives are going on it and I also have a love affair with the gt cruiser bars so those are staying too. I'm thinking DMR supermotos or staggered GT gum walls like the ones I have on my speed and pro series. And the black anodized gt stem, FSA orbit 3D headset, gt freestyle platforms and maybe the tour seat too!
