1998 GT Speed Series XL

Grape-Ade - Custom done GT Speed Series in purple w/Power Series decals. (Note: Power Series frames did not have the "Box" chain stays)

Here is the bike I put together for my youngest daughter who is graduating from Middle school on 6/19/09. This was the complete (except for wheels) that I scored from "jayoldmanbmx" a few months ago. I bought some new Sun rims to pair up with some old school low flange GT sealed bearing hubs and went with a custom powder coat job through my friend Joe who owns and operates Brooklyn Machine Works (BMW). It's actually a clear coat with a purple tint to it and it looks wicked in person. The pictures do not really convey the look of the powder coat job! Also, I picked up a few other parts from some members here, like the Crupi pedals and polished GT stem from Stonie. I went with a new seat with purple stitching and a puple brake lever, purple front axle nuts and nipples and the last addition, the purple overdrive chainwheel from Toby2D just last week.
