1987 GT Performer

Memory machine!

This is the exact bike my buddy had back in the day, can never forget the days of frame stands down my parents road (steep hill) in  88.  Found this bad boy on craigslist and had to get it, memories that this bike brings back are awesome.  My eldest daughter got an 86 pink pro performer so I figured my 3 yr. old will need one when she grows up.  It came without seat, post, and clamp, so I hooked it up with some parts from members out here (thanx) and the wheels make this one stand out.  Some elbow grease and time this survivor looks and rides like it did back in its day.  Now stored away until its time to ride.

Awesome Bike!  I had this exact same bike, only wish I could go back in time and talk young me into not selling it.  This bike was made for frame stands!! Have fun!
