What’s Top Fuel drag racing and bicycles got in common, the chassis is all important and the frame strength is critical to the performance and the drivability and reliability of the vehicle. So 40 years ago when BMX didn’t really exist Gary’s Turners kid wanted a bike to go out tackle the European style Motocross courses on a pushy, modified dragsters bikes where braking quickly and didn’t handle at speed. Gary who was a “gun” welder, who put together his own top fuel drag cars, welded together frame out of premium grade tubular Cr-Mo steel. He had the materials and the skills and the desire to push the boundaries. 4 decades later, year upon year refinement GT continue to deliver a range of bicycles that deliver premium performance.
