Re: Time Capsule GT

Re: Time Capsule GT

I'm glad to see that you all appreciate this bike as much as I do. I've been on this sites for several years and have really enjoyed the "look what I found" posts. Based on the responses, I do have an eye for a bad@$$ find. Thanks for the positive feedback. 80's at its best!!!

Re: Time Capsule GT

Yeah, as someone said earlier in the thread.....this is "survivor" defined.  What an awesome find.

I like seeing bikes like this big_smile I was a big sticker junkie.  The way the black bars and seat post don't match the rest of the bike either cool like you said, it's authentic.  I've read some long threads here about "What's a survivor?"...  This should be the definition!

Yeah, definitely.  Don't take off the Club Homeboy stickers!!

Re: Time Capsule GT

Favorite part? the perfectly intact traction tape on the top tube/standing platform.


Nice grab!

Re: Time Capsule GT

I love the traction tape too. I can't wait to take this thing to the next show. I can sit in my shop and just stare at it for hours, there is just so much going on. Thanks for all the positive feedback.
