Re: 1987 GT Performer

The pics were taken at Woodward West under fluorescent lighting which make the bike look slightly a different shade of blue. In person this thing is DEAD ON accurate GT blue… Thanks C4 Labs!!!

Re: 1987 GT Performer

Absolutely gorgeous build bro! I have the same bike. It was my first build when I got back into this ridiculously expensive hobby about a year ago. Very Clean man, I regret selling my OGK's and putting spokes on mine. And that seat you got on that thing looks like you went back to 1987 to get it. Mine is a survivor with a really clean frame. And your right Chip matched that blue up perfectly. instant fave! :cool:

Nice 87  GTP. I always dug the signature CHEESE GRATER chain wheel on them. :cool:


BEER, BABES, & BMX, what else does a man need? Well, maybe some BULLETS for his BERETTA 9 MILLA MEETA. :lol:
