Found my old 2006 stock bike (whats left) in the dirt under a pile of wood in my side yard. My 3rd bmx bike (2nd GT) the GT Fueler. Ugly yellow paint, rust and spider webs.. but I saw some potential in the garbage. I had enough spare parts, so I decided I wanted to build a trails only ride. The bike was ridden for a year of mostly street before I got my first aftermarket frame. I stripped it, sprayed flat black fades with can(even filled in GT's little engravings), covered it all with 2-3 layers of automotive clear. It's a heavy bike, but I'm glad its rebuilt.

I found out that Stephen Murray rode the same frame back then, so I stenciled a quick 'staystrong' under the down tube. Mirra passed during this little project, so there's a small '74DM16' above the lower section of the down tube as well. And an alloy 'GT' badge from my second bike.
