I didn't know we had 1 1/8 threaded. Generally the move to 1 1/8 was accompanied by the move to threadless. This picture, from the Park Tools page IP1 linked to is the threaded headset pieces, in order from left to right is top to bottom. http://www.parktool.com/assets/img/repairhelp/headtype18.jpg ... more »

Didn't know airborne was doing those...your video has a lot of bus seatback and not much riding...You should edit it down a bit. You also need to plan your action shots/tricks, and do them a few times to take the best one - would be nice to see whoever ... more »

Pretty sure it's an 88 - first year of the Vertigos. $50 https://www.bicyclebluebook.com/searchlistingdetail.aspx?id=78032 Unless you find some collector who for some reason wants the lowest end GT of the day, then $250

Although some the Stolen Stereo or Casino could work. Not a cro-mo frame but decent enough at those prices.

might be showing my age here...but the "sabre saw" refereed to in the Thrasher article is now usually called a Jig Saw. So it's a Jig saw you need to cut the curves. Also, not a reciprocating saw; you would need to be pretty damn good with a rec saw

If you have brakes already, a Gyro kit will include everything you need. if you don't have brakes already, you still need an actual brake and a lower cable.
