1985 GT Pro Performer

Quite a unique build for an exceptional bike!

I bought this as a complete bike before Christmas 2020. It was build to an "Ironman" Theme, built with a lot of repop kit in red and gold. It looked very nice but I bought this for the frame and forks.. I always wanted something in Candy Red!!!

I took off all the parts I didn't want on it (Which was almost everything), removed the custom gold decals and rebuilt...
There are no repop parts now other than the reissue Haro pegs, but that is because they are the only pegs I have that fit the threads on the old Coaster hubbed Tuffs.
I managed to source the black and white parts from an 87 Performer (Bars, grips, stem, post, clamp and cranks). I would like to change those 87 decals but they are OG, so I can't take them off really.
In a perfect world, I would prefer a black post and white seat to balance the colours, but I am not paying crazy money for a white seat.

One day, it'll go back to the original 85 colourway, but not this year!!!
