GT Pad Set

Did even think I'd manage to get a set of GT pads like I used to have. But a guy off the BMX Museum from Spain, supposedly got a load of these stored from the 80's. I managed to pick up a set of them, but had serious doubts about the originality of the pads. Firstly, the original ones were green with a blue GT logo, these are Green with a yellow GT logo, no stem pad, just the frame and bar pads, but I wouldn't be able to use the stem pad anyway due to the Gyro.

Seat installed

Got the seat on this evening...

The Cannondale was looking a bit of a mess after a month or so neglect, so gave it a wash and a quick service...


The new seat arrived today, well new as in 26 year old new. Managed to find this NOS green GT BMX seat. The thing is spotless, apart for some really minor surface ruts on the seat guts, but the rest is perfect.

Front Superlace Hub

Well, looks like it'll be a while before I can the front superlace built up. I left the hub into the chromers on Monday, but looks like a 2-3 month wait for completion, but it really needed redone.

It wasn't a pretty state before, especially when I went to remove the decal and the chrome came away with it :(

but hopefully it'll look better soon...
