This Bike Of The Day thing s getting crazy now!! Today’s featured bike is a 1986 GT World Tour sent in by Jason Orlandini. This bike is so clean and the mix of the chrome plated and polished gold parts take it to another level. This bike is loading with lots of vintage bells and whistles. Be sure to give this bike a rating via the sliders below.
Inspiration was the European Eddie Fiola world tour bike used specifically for the European tour. Obviously this is a custom build that is different from the bike used by Eddie. The Frame and forks were restored with a two stage powder coating on the frame , and I had the front forks re- chromed being they had seen better days.
Special Thanks to my Friend on this build Timmy “Lightz” Schackne. You are a true innovator in building & blueprinting BMX artwork.
Special Thanks as well to CHABY Owner Chaby’s Coatings Massachusetts specializing in Gold plating , Chroming & Powder coating.~ JASON ORLANDINI
