1984 GT Pro Performer

Found at a garage sale for $20

I was on my way to get a haircut back in the good old days Before the world went crazy. I was driving down to the barber shop but that day, I decided to take a different route down some country roads nearby. I saw a garage sale and out of the corner of my eye I spotted a white mag wheel. So I decided to pull in to check out what they had. I struck up a conversation with the seller who was a very nice older guy that was really into civil war memorabilia. I told him that I was on my way to the barber shop in town and just thought I would stop in and see what you’ve got for sale. I asked him what he was asking for the pink bike and he replied $30. I then stated that if I gave him $30 than I wouldn’t have enough money for a haircut and asked if he would take $20 for it to which he happily agreed and I handed him $20. We talked for a little while longer and I went on my way to get my hair cut. “Tell Ken that I said Hello” he said as I was leaving. Ken is the old barber that owned the small barbershop a few miles away that I went to. Gotta love small town vibes.

I do believe that this bike originated as a Frame,Fork and Handlebar set and was either built up by the shop that sold it back in the day as a complete Or whoever built it had very good taste in parts. This is about as survivor as survivor gets.

Really cool survivor! It's an '85 btw. This color was not available in '84. Possibly a 12/84 manufacture date if the serial is on the dropout?

Great score. I can't even find a garage at a garage sale. :)


I don't like kickstand holes in a Mongoose matchbox.
