90s GT Guys.... Did GT actually make something this ugly?

I'm wasn't into bmx much in the 90s but I dont remember these...
I see them on another website listed as NOS.
They look like shit. I'm guessing repops.

I hope so. I have a few and was told they are 90's and the repops are the ones with the cable guide whole.


Looking for a small Yeti made Schwinn Homegrown MTB frame. Or other Yeti made frames. Pair of Spurs tickets to all home games for sale or trade for 80's BMX or nice Odyssey Pitbull brake.
If I owe you feedback let me know.

Me either. I figure that's why the prices are lower.

Fake... I mean look at the "fit and finish" or lackthereof in pic 3 and tell me that any reputable company would let that product out their doors..  Just asking for a lawsuit from product failure..

Definitely fakes. Could have been made from the unstamped knockoffs that came on Royce Unions

Is it just me or does it look like there is a gap where the quill shaft meets the mallet...looks to be a horrible piece

GT did make mallets in second generation form.....chromo shaft in chrome and a threaded hole for a rotor.

They were not sold on bikes, just as parts.
