yes you could have a super kickass mid school racer with newer parts. see if you can find one of the old aluminum gt speed series frames. nothing wrong with that at all.

Personally I wouldn't competitively race any aluminum frame that's more than 10 years old. Too much fatigue. Geometry is a little different but you could get by. If your going to race something older i would go with a chromoly frame like a standard 125r, s&m challenger, elf, etc.
