1985 GT Performer

Custom 1985 GT Performer

This bike came to me as a 1985 GT performer in chrome. However, because the chrome was so bad, I decided to go white. I do not regret this decision. Because I saw so many powdered Performers out there, I decided to go custom with as much as I possibly could.

I suppose the decals get the most looks. I designed them myself and paid premium to have them made. They turned out great, in my opinion.
The pads that was also my design.  Living in the greater Cincinnati area, I decided to pay tribute to my hometown crowd. I figured if I have to pay to have custom pads made, I may as well get what I want.   There certainly isn’t anything else out there like them.
Next would be the custom break garden, which I made myself.  I carved the form out of Styrofoam, and layered it in fiberglass. Then I designed the decal and clearcoated over that. I think it adds a lot to the viewing pleasure of the bike.
Halfway through the build I decided to take up a Powder Coating. I Powder Coating all the components and candy blue.
