Re: 1978 GT Gary Turner

Should have kept it all original.

I still have all the parts that came on it if I ever feel like bringing it back to that. But most the parts on it were not functional. The stem was rusted beyond use. The wheels need the axles replaced, The tires, well you can see daylight through them. The seat post was pretty stuck in the frame, the seat was jacked up, the brakes were salvagable, the bottom bracket was rusted in there. It took quite a bit of work to get the old parts off. Some of the stuff like the headset I saved and used. But it's really pitted as well. Anyway I still have all the parts and I understand the need to keep it in survivor condition. And all the parts that I did put on it are era correct survivor condition parts. The only thing that's NOS is the number plate and number plate decals. I dig the way it came out and a lot of other people do as well. Not that I care what anyone else thinks, I build em the way I like em. But I do think everyone is entitled to an opinion. Thanks. : )

Re: 1978 GT Gary Turner

You're welcome. It's mostly just hate on my end because my two Garys aren't this sweet. It makes me happy that you kept all the original parts, if you ever decide to sell them I'm your man wink they would help me complete my 76 Gary.

Re: 1978 GT Gary Turner

Well, Gary doesn't own the GT name. I believe that Pacific cycles owns the GT name. Gary recently decided to resurrect the Gary Turner brand. He makes a great high quality bike.
