Man, what an awesome bike. Love it. I've got a nice '88 F/F in black that I'm going to have to try and build up now. The cranks are so hard to get here in Oz though, no one wants to part with them.

No - I purchased it from another forum member a couple years back.

Re: 1988 GT Pro Series XL

This bike is amazing!  You hardly see any of these mid to late 80's Pro Series built up to factory specs.  The bikes were perfect the way they came from GT.
