Looks truly awesome in person.

Really????
Have you been to my apartment in Philly?
You might have it mistaken for a different GT.
smile
But thank you for the compliment.

The bike is actually complete with the correct pedals and all now. I need to update the pics badly.

whew ... thought you sold it!!! yikes big_smile big_smile

Yup, Darkman mistakened yours for the one from RI at BMX Spring Brake: (http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.p … 9&p=26)
Which by the way had SICK GT chrome rear frame standers! cool

Cool.
Thanks for figuring that out Justin.

That GT is nicer than mine!

Less some decals, different pedals and pegs, both are the same! big_smile
If it makes you feel better, I will gladly give it a new home. Don't hesitate!! lol

I spoke w/ the RI owner of the other GT (forgot his name) and we are both addicted to late 80s freestyle bikes. lol
He has a much more impressive collection than me (especially w/ his polishing skills).
I would've bought his chrome Q bars (like the one in your '89 GT picture at the top) but I bought a pretzel already. smile

Cheers.


My stash.  Ride on. smile

THEN.....
I rider-ized it with some non-vintage tires, a different set of GT Power Series cranks that already had the label worn off, and a used set of KKT Pedals.  I put my GT/Araya Race wheelset on here for now until I get the Superlaces tuned back up and trued.


Rides great - as it always did.
These pics were from a nice session about a month ago before all the leaves fell off the trees.

Re: 1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour Team

I just found an OLD pic of this bike, taken in 1990.
I was in my Black and White Photography phase.


Who remembers "Fuct"? 
I had those stickers everywhere. smile

Just look at the Thrashin' I put on those cranks....
I needed them for a reason. I rode every day and night back then.

When you keep bending 1-pc cranks, these were Well Worth the $125 they cost back in 1988.
Up until I started rebuilding and collecting BMX stuff in the early 2000's - these cranks were the last set of cranks I had ever bought. They went on all of my bikes.
I still swear by them today.

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile
