1999 GT Tour

How BMX'ers do bling!

I started out searching for a black 99 Tour,  then happened upon this NOS chrome Tour frame.  I built it all stock, but then decided it need some more character.  I went through every little part and fastener on the bike and proceeded to strip, sand, chrome, or de-annodize until every part was either silver or chrome.  Added a chrome FSA headset, swapped the profile cranks for the 2001 GT tubular cranks, and swapped the Gyro with a Snafu Mobeus detangler.  Couldn't find the original dropnose seat with the spandura cover, so I used a newer 200 grit dropnose seat.  Which in the end looked better because the white logo doesn't clash with the color scheme the way the red embroidered logos would.  Also, swapped the GT pedals with NOS Shimano DX pedals (the newer Gen.) Serial# 03990018 TOUR

Hope you dig my BMX bling!!
