The pro series XL plus is very rare and it's one of the most beautiful bmx steel frame. I think it was the last  US handmade. It was sold frame only (I have the french catalog year 2000... )

Re: 1999 GT Pro Series XL

To Clarify, this is not a US Made GT.  This is a Tiawan made frame, but there were two versions of this frame, both with similar tubing and same geometry.  The frame/fork set you could purchase was USA made, Reynolds 631 Main frame, chromoly rear triangle.  The complete bike (pictured) was Tiawan made.  Had 631 Reynolds down tube only, 4130 tubes elsewhere.  Same xl+ geometry which I believe meant xxl front and xl rear, which was more old school dimensions than current with a 20.8 top tube, it was slightly shorter than many xxl frames. Rode great, sold it to focus on US made bikes.
