My Dad had gotten this bike in the early 80's when we lived in Michigan. I only road this bike for a couple of months, then cannabilized and put the crankset on my Spalding BMX bike to have a high geared BMX bike. When ever I road this bike and was going fast I would always sing in my head that song, "Ride like the wind" I think by Chicago? Interesting bike got me interested in road bikes. Was good to be able to test out a road bike for a bit before getting my own.
UPDATE! I was thinking of the right song, but the wrong artist. The artist is Christopher Cross.
This bike is similar to mine the big differences were that I did not have the GT 3-piece cranks(which urber cool)or the handlebar. I had a one piece crank, and a Tioga Compact disc chainring. I also had this wicked cool bars I think made by boss that had and extra crossbar.
I was able to learn a few tricks on my freestyle bike, I also road on a quarter pipe with it once. One of the things I will always remember is jumping out of the ground up the walls, before the foundation was poured for houses. Made you feel like you were going 20 ft in the air but in reality you were just going like four feet.
