A real barn find.
My Dad finds me another sweet bike.  This CR-MO Performer was really found in a barn, surrounded by hay and full of rust.I didn't think I could get it this clean.  Don't let the pics fool you.  In the sun, you can see all of the pitting, but in the shade or 5 feet away, it's awesome.It needed tires, tubes, chain, brake pads, grips, cables, freewheel, and pedals.  It rides so good, all of the bearings are good.  The axle nuts appear to have never been taken off the bike.  Dropouts are excellent.  Decals still look amazing  I believe it was all original.  I think it was rode for a year and stashed away in the barn for over 20 years.  I only paid $60 for this bike.I added......Panaracer HP406 tiresNOS GT pedalsGT AME gripsOdyssey cablesDia-compe brake padsPurple dice capsKMC silver and black chainDicta freewheel, chrome and black

I have to thank my buddy John aka bRADdlphns for the rust removal of my bars and seat post. He put them in his citric acid bath or whatever he called it

Great looking bike.  I always liked the decals on these '89s.  Nice to know that there are still some chrome gems hidden away out there.

Re: 1989 GT Performer

Hay man, I have this exact bike. I have been searching for quite awhile for a twin. My dad bought it brand new when he was twelve and he gave it to me when he realized he was too old to continue freestyle. I don’t know what it is worth but would like to, any idea?
