GT CalifoSnia padset

Recommended Posts

Did you guys seen those repop GT padsets with the misprint from Malaysia?

The sellers never mention the misprint (CalifoSnia)!

Some links of the padsets i'm talking about:

blue set

blue set ended

red set ended

For me it looks like an "r" in that font, I must not be too much of a hard core GT guy?

 

:Idunno:

 

My repop BS meter is getting pretty accurate though after a few years of e baying.

Looks a bit "S'ish" to me. Here's the original design, pretty clearly an "r"gt-pad.jpg

nope that would be an s in that font . here is the font with an r i dug up to show the difference . notice the r has a straight line across the top . and the s droops down on the fake .

Gotcha, you know how many GT padsets were being sent to Malaysia then?

 

I would bet zero. No chance of them being NOS with all colors offered.

 

I could be wrong, but ads like this this just don't sound right from the gecko, aside from the fontup.

I just wish all that repop shit had typo's so there's no mistaking what it is.

There was one seller offering padsets on ebay for a while stating "found in bike shop" "Not sure if NOS". And he was selling the same pads on the Museum as repro.

 

He changed his wording on his ebay listings to "Not NOS". Never mentions repro.

More disturbing news:

Another seller from Malaysia:

ebay link

If you look to his feedback, he sold CalifoSnia pads in the past.

Now he offer GT padsets in the bag with a cardboard.

At first look, you would think they are from BMX N West(Justin).

But i'm almost sure those pads are the CalifoSnia ones too!

And...the cardboard isn't 100% the same as those from Justin!

Look to the white "slot" printed on the cardboard!

Here a pic from Justin's site:

Clearly the printed "slot" is different!

I supose we need to inform Justin about this.

You shouldn't feel bad. Its probably shill bidding on the sellers part. Why else would he you have it set at "private"

It would be fun to create some fake ebay accounts just to bid crazy high on this fake crap that is clearly being listed with shady intent.

That devilfrankie dude is in malaysia and another member at the M told me he bought a set and the pad cover almost isnt wide enough to cover the foam and fasten the velcro. Nice....
