This is my original 1983 GT Pro Nora Cup. My son started raceing in08 and I had the wild hair of restoring it and now it just take up space in my formal living room because theres no way I would put it back in the storage building. Its not been outside except for these pics since. The frame, fork, GT pro bars, and lay back seatpost are all from the original bike along with the cranks and pedals. The Chrome is in good to very good condition with no rust. There was some slight surface rust around the seat post mast by the top tube and it came off farely well with 0000 steel wool. It does have some fine scratch residue in that area. But for 28 year old chrome it looks very good. I used only GT authorized vendors for any parts I could not get NOS (new old stock). The list is as follows.
New correct decal set from BMX Products including the Nora cup, And a new correct red pad set from Northwest Bmx. Bothwere Licensed by GT to mfg these sets.

A NOS set of yellow lable Comp III tires 20 x 2.125 in front and 20 X 1.75 in the rear. Its also got NOS Red Tuff Neck pro stem, seat post clamp, axle nuts and 43 tooth front chain ring. The freewheel isthe originalSuntour. The crank set isthe restored Sugino Maxxy Cross in 175mm, with Suntour XCII pedals also restored all the way down to the decals and newly anoed cages. And the BB is a NOS sealed cartridge bearing Tioga. As for the brakes they arethe matched set of dated 83 Dia Compe MX 1000 caliper with matching two finger lever both chrome,red skyway brake pads and also a red dated 85 Dia Compe cable . The cable clamps are also red ano by Dia Compe. Its got red AME grips and a red Kashum Kashimax Aero seat. The chain is a NOS Izzumi red and chrome. The forks have never been drilled. The S/N is 78369 with the xtra "4" indicating that it is the Pro Model. All the correct axle safety washers have always been installed on this bike so the drop outs are perfect.

This is a 28 year old bike and it is sold as is with no returns. You will not be disappointed.
11/24 Note the Stem is not made by Tuff neck. I sold the new in the bag Tuff neck a few months back on here. The color was way off it was more orangeish. The stem currently on the bike is a Rep-roduction Pro Neck that is as well made as the tuff neck if not better, and the color is the correct red for the bike.
