1983 GT Pro
« on: August 11, 2017, 11:56 PM »
Back in 1983, up to the month April, GT released the Pro with seriously nice parts. From April that year, they dropped the quality components for cheaper products for whatever reason. So, here is my March 1983 dated GT Pro. The only difference to spec are the cranks and rims, plus added Hutch headlock. I also swapped out the Tech 2 lever for a Tech 3 as it is being ridden. Complete survivor condition down to the chain.

******Original black padset wanted to complete this bike******

Seriously that is 1983 all in one neat package Terry. Brilliant. I can imagine tearing around the local streets and tracks on that like it was yesterday.

Thanks Spen. I knew this would be right up your street being a survivor, and ridden  ;)  It's just done a few miles in south of France the past 3 weeks 😎
