Going by the decals, it's an 88 but it has an 89 stem on it.
Price? $400 or higher. Maybe.
You worked at GT? I love the dx copy pedals from the early 90's. Still have two sets.

White on white with six way wagon wheel mags just assume dude. Purple otherwise and a smaller size for BMX just no clue on price just keep it if your in heary. As for age I'm pretty sure it is late 87 model sold in 88.

It still had the owners manual with the price tag hanging from it. It belongs to another member hear. We picked a barn together. He got the BMX stuff and I got the roadie stuff.

Here she is tonight after I spent some time and actually cleaned it up. It has never been ridden and has the original price tag and owners manual. Being stored in the barn caused the tires and rims to yellow a bit, and it has some small signs of rust on the bars in 2 joints. This is very minimal though. I have yet to see a Pro Performer like this while searching the web. It really cleaned up well though.
I will take more in depth photos soon to give you a better idea of the components.
I grew up riding bmx (I'm only 22) and didn't catch this end of it. But RAD has always been my favorite movie. I was also able to ride with Rick Molinterno for a once and that was amazing.
jjhabbs brought me to the barn and I snatched up all of the 80's bmx gear, while they drooled over the vintage road gear.
ALSO, I can't reply to private messages, so messaging me is useless. haha
I have things listed on ebay currently, but some of it I will keep.
Please allow me this brief moment of hating you.
Ok, now that's over with, what a great find! You should ride that thing like you stole it.
P.S. I still hate you. :)
