1982 GT Pro

1982 GT Pro

Nice survivor f/f.

This was the bike that got me back into old school BMX. I had an '82 Pro f/f BITD with mostly blue parts (now re-created with an '85 f/f as seen in my bikes). This is very similar to my old bike except in better condition than mine was even when I first got it. Chrome is nice, very little wear anywhere on the bike. A very nice example. And very happy to have "my" favorite bike back! I have an NOS sticker set (with the yellow the proper warm color, not the greenish yellow you see on all the later reissues and repops... ick) that I'm considering putting on this, but I like the survivor vibe as well.
-
I don't normally like race bikes with mags, but I love the badass look of this bike in all chrome and black.

Re: 1982 GT Pro

Yeah, I don't think he had it out until Saturday afternoon, or if he did, I didn't see it either. It was sitting there with black Tuff Wheels on it, which I didn't take. I'm new to the Milwaukee area, just the past couple years. From Rockford and Minneapolis before that.

Thanks for the comments!

Re: 1982 GT Pro

Thanks! This one doesn't get ridden much... I'm building up another GT and a RL for that purpose. But this year, I may take this out for a spin on a dry day. It's definitely screaming for it! :)

Re: 1982 GT Pro

Yep, definitely. This one is torn apart right now, will be built back up this winter. Your Tuf-Neck disc is going on here :)

Re: 1982 GT Pro

I got sick of seeing this bike sit around with no wheels on it, and I can't afford right now to build some proper wheels for it, so I threw this set of new Tuff II's on it. I think it needs some Comp II style tires, would look better than the Comp III style. Updated pics taken 15 minutes ago! :cool:
