1992 GT Mach One 80s tribute bike restoration. I managed to pick this bike up for only $20 at a local garage sale. Not being a big fan of the early 90s "No Fear" graphics/ styling, I opted to turn it into a custom tribute version of the '87 Mach One.

'97 GT Performer that I picked up on Craigslist for $50. The bike was 100% complete, however it had been neglected for quite some time. My original intention was to simply "refresh" the bike to is original stock form, but once I got started, I decided to do a custom restoration.

1997 Robinson MX. I picked up the frame/fork/handlebars locally off of Ebay for $21. The parts were in overall decent shape with the exception of a broken off rear brake caliper mount/ pivot stud. I decided to give it a custom restoration sourcing a number of GT parts.
