84 GHP Trix Build
« on: March 27, 2018, 10:49 AM »
I still have a few builds on the slow burner but had pretty much done everything I wanted, sold a few and decided on the keepers. 
Being a big GHP fan there was only one frameset that was going to change that but I had pretty much given hope on getting one ..... until recently !!!
Just after Christmas a GHP Trix came up for sale from Picklez, a few messages later and a deal was done and I picked up this beauty.  :4_17_5:

Just love the double drop outs

It's a July 84 model so one of the first produced, I started to do some digging on how to build it up.
New frame first mentioned in May 84

Then I came across an old Vans advert showing Martin Aparijo on what I assume is a Trix.

and so I had a plan for the build

what happened to this? Was it finished? Or for sale?
When I was born, the world was a far simpler place.
It was all just cops and robbers.
And BMX.

I've missed it when I was there. Your one has a sequential frame number to mine.
