    Here's my 1981 GT 26" race cruiser. All original finishes and decals. Has GT frame, fork, seat post and first generation cruiser bars. Third generation profile cranks. A Torker six-bolt stem. Araya 7C hoops laced to loose ball Suzues. (I have a serviced pair of first gen Phils. Just waiting till I find a match for my NOS Araya 7x orphan.)
    The brakes are Dia Compe MX1000's with a Tech 3 lever. The Troxel seat has been replaced by a red Kashimax MX.

    I don't suppose you're willing to part with the GT?

    Hey man. Welcome aboard.

    To answer your question: Yes, indeed.
    I like pretty much any cool bike. Old School BMX has been my main area.
