    1983 Diamond Back Silver Streak

    Nice find! It will make for a good project to get cleaned up. I had a number of western flyers and dept. store bikes before I finally got one of these in Feb. '83. I went to the bike shop every week drooling over a black/gold Redline mx3 and when my mom finally got the funds , we went to get the...

    I've had this '89 GT Talera for nearly 30 years.

    I just noticed no triple triangle, maybe '88 or earlier. Does it have serial # maybe under bottom bracket or rear dropout? I'm waiting on cooler weather to get more distance riding here in the south. I don't ride my pink tequesta as it is all original as bought from the shop but could remove...

    I've had this '89 GT Talera for nearly 30 years.

    Love the old GT's, most have really cool paint on them. I have an '89 Tequesta in pink smoke color, they make the perfect bikes to ride in places like that.

    Early components...

    I learned to ride clipless on those Onza H.O. pedals as they were my 1st ones ever owned. I have a set that I need to finish restoring.

    NC Cycling Rendezvous 2020 SURVEY QUESTION???

    I had planned to attend on the 1st dates. I'm any and everything bikes but 90% of my bikes are knobby tire even though I've logged a ton of miles on road bikes for race fitness. I would be down for a show/swap and vintage bike ride of a few miles through town and the BBQ would be a bonus.

    Fresh Find GT Pro Performer

    You could soak the grips in bleach about 3-4 days and would clean up good to keep it all original except the tires. It is like a lottery ticket to get these cheap nowadays as there are so many eyes on this stuff and other factors involved to be the 1st to even get to it even though you're the...

    1987 gt pro performer

    Here's my '87 CL barn find score. The seller had no clue of value so It was a great deal. He also showed up with his 1st BMX bike which was a Mongoose blue max with motomags that I got for an extra $50. It was in rough shape but now a show bike with OG finish. This was a memorable day.

    NC Cycling Rendezvous 2020 Swap Meet & Bike Show

    Just let us know what the categories are before the show so we'll know what bikes to bring. Look forward to it as it looked like lots of road bikes last year. My collection is all off-road but like the skinny tires too.

    Recycle rescue GT pro performer freestyle tour 1987 freestyle bmx

    One option and what I'd do would be to restore/refinish the frame/fork and display on a shelf especially if the parts are too costly which I'm sure they are being that its a pro. I'm an OG finish guy and do all I can to save the finish but I think yours is too far gone so maybe you can have that...

    91 GT Karakoram Elite

    Cool deal! If any of these cool paint early GT's pop up local in 14.5" or 16" size I'll buy 'em all. Yours appears to be 20". There was a black with white pins local for $40 but had to pass as it was a 22" size. I was disappointed as it was one of my favorite colors.

    91 GT Karakoram Elite

    I love these early 90's splatter paint GT's. I have a '92 GT Tequesta with almost identical paint as yours but my blue is a little brighter. These are going for $50-$150 local and collector value is slightly higher.
