1982 GT Nora Cup Build

Earlier I got off the phone with my friend, and he said he was goign to the skatepark and needed a bike, and woudl bring me if I built his bike. Heres the Set-up

1982 GT Nora Cup Frame
1998 GT Mach one Threaless forks
2001 GT Johnson Stem(off a bump)
Old School Redline Racing Rims
Dyno 4PC Chopped bars.
Old School Redline 1 Pc

I wish I had a camera, cause this bikes is awesome. We rigged a threadless to work on an Old School frame(a trick we had learned last winter). The bike Weighs only 21lbs, and I can bunny hop over 2 feet on this beast.

I know about a dozen people in the over-thirty age group that would kick your underage ass for committing atrocities of this nature.

For taking a classic race frame, rigging some sh1tty Taiwanese forks and a poorly designed, overbuilt stem from a freestyle bike that aren't even designed to fit the headtube on the frame (among other things that I can only imagine you've done), and then riding it at a skatepark where it's most likely going to get thrashed.

Beerman, only 11 years? You still probably know more (about BMX at least) than I've learned in 30 years of riding.

To put things in perspective for you little ones, my kids are 12,14,15, and 17. So I'm used to dealing with you guys. But my kids seem so much smarter...

Well, I myself am 21 and i claim to be no genius, however, i do find it fair to say that someone has thrown this board the lowest common denominator when it comes to the younger ones on here
