Very nice! cool If I were you I'd leave it as og as possible as it looks sweet enough as it is!


Check out my 1983 VDC-built Trident, 1983 Kuwi Laserlite, 2010 GT Ultrabox 2, 2011 Crupi race rig and prototype Quamen, plus the all things Crupi & old school scene in Japan threads. Always interested in buying used, mid-school race plates.

Re: 1983 GT Expert

Very nice. If the OG brakes match and work, I'd put those back on. Congrats on a great bike!
