look on the bottom braket - where the pedals go - see if it has a 8 0r 7 in the first 4 numbers

some times hard to tell if pro perfromer or a performer :wink:


Yeah, actually what are the differences between the pro and normal performer? Also correct me if i'm wrong but were'nt 97 models a different frame design?

Yeah Will do. Can you help on a bit of GT history please? Was 98 the last year for GT's being made in America? I heard some taiwanese company bought them out around that time? Is this true? thanks again. :)

Cossie-Yeah she has the blue decals on the seat tube. Might need some new ones tho for main frame and forks. Do you know of and shops that have them? Also do you know if they were still made in the USA in 98? Pics of your bike would be spot on. thanks
