1998 GT Performer

Recommended Posts

1998 GT Performer all original except sprocket and pedals.

98 Performer bought new at my local bike shop by a friend of mine back in 98. He changed the GT sprocket out for a DK 43t and switched the plastic GT pedals for alloy Fishbone pedals.

Nice.

I don't know Bo Diddley about freestyle bikes, but in the first pic with the closeup of the cranks, it looks like it is textured on the upper surface with the pedal forward and shiney smooth on the lower. Is this to give extra traction for tricks and such?

No. The face of both sides is smooth. The back and sides are rough cast. It's just for looks.

I'm gaining more of an appreciation for that era of freestyle bikes. That one looks like a decent sized top tube so it can actually be used as transportation. Old school functionality mixed with new school durability.

cool ride. That was the second bike that got me back into BMX in the late 90's. I bought one new from the shop the day after the Mach 1 I got at a yard sale was stolen on the mean streets of NYC. This one got vicked like a week before 9/11, locked up in front of the theatre I was working during a performance of "Bat Boy, the Musical".  Bike/horse thieves should be drawn and quartered.
