1999 GT Speed Series Cruiser 24

A potent mixture of stock, NOS and a touch of new...



I approached this build with the idea of going with whatever parts I wanted (modern or mid school) and not limiting myself to the era. As soon as I got this bike, I completely disassembled every nut, bolt and nipple. I sent the bars and forks out to be re-chromed. While I was at it, I decided to chrome the GT Rhythm System Hubs. I think they turned out sweet. Then it was time to hand polish all of the aluminum parts to a mirror finish. It took a while but turned out better than I was expecting. Next I laced up the freshly chromed hubs to a pair of chrome Sun Rhyno Lite XL hoops. By the time that was done I received most of the parts I needed including all new chrome plated bolts. It was time for the final assembly which went way too fast. I’ve built hundreds of bikes but not at this level. This has been one of the most fun and rewarding builds I’ve done. Thanks for checking out my post!!!

Re: 1999 GT Speed Series Cruiser 24

Thanks Man! I was nervous about chroming the hubs especially when they were in good shape to begin with but I had to take that chance. This may be my last build so I wanted to go big.

The double wall rhythm hoops are tight! Wish I had some. If I did I would definitely chromed them. Your amtrac is sick!

Re: 1999 GT Speed Series Cruiser 24

That is one clean looking ss.
imo a 99 ss seat would set it off.
Really like those hubs in chrome.  Ive got a set laying around that might get chromed now after seeing yours. 
Very nice build.

Re: 1999 GT Speed Series Cruiser 24

Thanks hawhaw86!! I really appreciate it! The props my build has been getting has been totally unexpected. All your feedback is making me rethinking what I said about this build being my last. smile

Do you have pics of your pro series?

BTW, DUDE! I want that Quad!!!
