1998 GT Performer

Admin Note: Regular model Performer, not the Pro.

I got what you see plus a GT laid back seat post, seat post clamp, pedals and seat for less than $50. I can't wait to build it up. It has a blue profile chainring and I am going to get a blue ano profile stem to match it. I am going to put some blue tuff II's on it and get an old school set of properformer bars powdered green to match it, I will probably get the forks painted green also. This is not as old as what I normally look for but it will make a great rider. This will happen soon unless i get side tracked with another one.

Re: 1998 GT Performer

Thanks for the suggestion. Interesting thing about this frame is that it has a 1" threaded fork and head tube, so the fork you have the link to wouldn't fit. I took one of my old school headset nuts and threaded onto the fork just to double check and the cup also fits in the head tube. I thought that by '98 that most bikes had the 1-1/8 steerer tube? Any thoughts on that.

Re: 1998 GT Performer

i have that exact same frame, mine was originally green too,painted it yellow, but now its raw,ill probly repaint it green...
it was an awesome rider...
yup that performer had the 1" headtube...
it was the pro performer of that year that had the 1-1/8" headtube, also the pro performer was full chromo as opposed to chromo maintubes like the regular performer...
build it up and ride it unti the wheels fall off bro! lol

oh btw, those threaded pacman forks are super hard to find, if you wanna get rid of them let me know big_smile
