    A local seller listed this 85 GT Mach One last week at a good price so I had to snatch it up.

    It's mostly original with the exception of the Elina seat and AME Cam grips. It should have had a GT stamped seat and a different set of AME grips. Some have mentioned that the seat clamp isn't correct, but I have seen other survivor Mach Ones running this same clamp.

    I ended up giving it a quick bath and throwing some Kenda freestyle tires on to see how it would ride. Didn't want to blow out the original GT winged tires! It cleaned up very nice. I just need to go through and clean and regrease all of the bearings next.

    I’m not a BMX guy but that looks like a nice GT bike. My boys went through the BMX phase.

    Cool looking bike. Forgive the dumb question, but what kind of kickstand is that?
