Check out this GT i found...

Normal Saturday morning having coffee cruising the interwebs and found this.
Luckily it was in a town i used to live in and i know the lady well at the LBS so after some frantic texts i secured it and the seller dropped it off to her to ship to me, got it today.

I was shocked to open the box and find the pads and the platform for the DK stem big_smile

Cool.

Ditch the standers and sell that DK stem and finish it off.

Is it a late 1985?

Re: Check out this GT i found...

That DK platform is one rare find! I like the bike as is. It shows the transition of bmx...as freestyle got popular we didnt run out and buy new bikes, we ditched the number plates and slapped pegs n standers on ours. Sweet score fo' sho!
