    I can't say about anywhere else but I was given to understand around here, shops HAVE to sell bikes/wheels with reflector on. Schrader valve doesn't mean anything one way or the other. That tire new sells for $40.

    ^^ actually, that's around market price (if not less) that some BMX vintage collectors will pay

    -Dion would be the man around here to verify this (he's not a vintage collector IIRC - just an accomplished BMXer [freeystyler])

    see here for reference - gt performer | eBay
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    That is the kind of awesome bike I LOVE to see a little 8 year old shredder use to kick the nutsacks off of the twenty-somethings at the BMX park

    FWIW, I DESPISE pink. I would never ride that bike as is, I would strip the paint. But for girls who rock that color, ****ing ROCK IT all over that bike park! <3

    Thanks for the mention Dell!

    That is a GT performer, very ancient and very popular among the vintage BMX guys. That thing is is fair condition and would make a great conversation piece. The best freestyle BMX'ers of 1986 rode pink bikes. I rode an electric blue Dyno Pro Compe. Martin Aparijo rode for GT and had a pink bike for awhile. Who's Martin Aparijo? If you saw the movie Rad, you saw him ride as the girl in the famous school dance scene where they played "Send Me an Angel". The other rider was Eddie Fiola. They were both stuntmen in Quicksilver, too.

    For $300, I would definetely rock that Performer. They aren't close to the worth of Pro Performers and Pro Freestyle Tour bikes, though. I loved those freestyle bikes. The 80's freestyle scene was all about bright colors, showmanship, and being in team uniforms. All that changed in the 90's when riders didn't want to wear that stuff anymore, everybody tossed the hot pink and electric blue, and opted for chrome and black and skater clothes.

    The pink tells a story of freestyle past. For those of us who rode through that period into the transitional 90's, it brings back fond memories. We needed to go through pink bikes and team uniforms or else riding wouldn't be where it is today.

    My brother had a GT performer circa late 80's.. Not pink though, I think chrome. I had a Mongoose Decade.. Aqua blue with pink letters and white tires. We both got them for Xmas in '87 or '88. Pegs and spindles were the rage then from what I remember but I was also 6 or 7. The movie 'Rad' made the scene very popular then. Thanks for bringing back those memories..

    Hell no. Me, 1989. Freshman year, Santa Cruz High!

    I would not be into bikes this much if it weren't for those days. I eat, sleep, love, BMX as much then as I do now! And yes, this was the electric blue Dyno Pro Compe, and I believe I had a neon pink Local Motion sticker on it.

    Yep! Back in the day I couldn't wait to get home from school to ride my bike everyday. Funny, I got a red square with no name next to it for posting the link above to a similar bike I had in the 80's saying it is the "gayest blue bike" anonymous has ever seen. I bet whoever it is wears skinny jeans and watched power rangers though.

    The 80's are scary! So many bright colors, fashion and design epic failures, and a cheese level that somehow manages to make ME cringe!
