1987 GT Performer

My daily rider! I am the original owner of this 1987 GT Performer.  I bought it new from the local bike shop with my hard earned paper route money!  I still have the receipt and manual.

1987 GT Performer (New model decals applied when I didn't know any better! I plan to change them back to original someday.)  The bike came complete with all white components, OGK Performer mags, white GT tires, white seat... etc.  Over the years I stripped all those parts off and made the bike more personal and unique.  I still have the majority of the original parts, including the white mags which are currently on my brothers Haro Sport!

Re: 1987 GT Performer

Newer decals on older frame looks good.  Like to see someone changing things up.

Re: 1987 GT Performer

Thanks!!  I actually did the decal swap back in 88 - 90.  Not thinking that it would hurt the value!  I have done tons of changes troughout the years to the bike. Just could never make up my mind!!

Re: 1987 GT Performer

Great looking bike! My 88 Performer has 90's style decals. It's all about what you like.
