1981 GT 26
This is a bike i had back in 1981 built as a beach cruiser with coaster brake.
I sold this bike to a friend in 1982 for 250.00 bucks all i had into it at the time,it was built as a beach cruiser with flanders motorcycle bars mounted to a tough neck,gold araya 7x with a coaster brake,and a old brooks saddle.This bike hung in his garage for over 20 years and was rode vary little,then about 5 years ago i visited my friend and noticed the GT 26 was missing and i asked him where it was and he said he gave it to a friend for free.I tracked down his friend and was able to buy the bike back,i took it apart and rebuilt it as a 26 bmx racer with the cooks bars and stem off my king sting,got a set of gold and blue bullseye hubs and laced them in the 7x rims,put 401 flights with suntour sealed bmx pedals and philwood spider,and a nos kashimax mx seat.
It now has GT 1st gen cruiser bars and a pro neck II stem as seen in the first pic.
