I had this catalog too. I bought the GT Performer in this exact color scheme. If I remember correctly it…
I live in Stockholm, Sweden and I have been into BMX since the beginning of the 80´s. I bought my first BMX bike in 1983 when I was eleven years old. It was an “PMX Club” in chrome with red parts and it was purchased at ¨Cykel-Pelle” in Fruängen. Before I could afford to buy my first ¨real¨ BMX bike in 1983, me and my dad built a couple of homemade BMX bikes for me.
I rode my first BMX race in Märsta 1985, and after that I got more and more involved in the sport. I have competed for Team Sweden in racing and I have also competed successfully in freestyle (dirt, park & street) all over the world. Unfortunately, major injuries has kept me away from riding for many years.
In the summer of 2009, I started to build and collect old school BMX bikes from the 80´s. I had many of my old parts and even some bikes saved in my dad´s basement and garage. But I guess it actually started when Patrik ¨Döskallen¨ Eklund gave me some of his old frames and parts in 2009. I’m very grateful for that.
My dad have been very helpful over the years, and without him, this wouldn’t have been possible.
If you would like to contribute with bikes or parts from the 80´s (or early 90´s) to my collection, please let me know. 😀
I hope you will like my bikes!
