Looks like a Pro Freestyle Tour to me.  I know because I had the exact same bike.  Except mine was a team model.

I would gladly offer 1000 for it, but 3000 is rediculous. That thing mustve been packaged around the time I was born.

I believe I saw that for sale on the museum for 3K
got alot of people saying how nice,  but apparently no buyers.

also it was missing some gyro stuff from it,  so its not totaly complete I believe.

Yeah I told the guy the price was crazy. But he swore he had like 5 people fighting over it to buy it.

A few NOS frame/fork sets were snapped up for $1000 so a completel NOS for $3000 doesnt sound too bad. (not that i'd pay it)

Lol. I gave away this exact bike a year and a bit ago free. It got restored a little, with all original parts and made its way on a bike shop wall as a museum piece. I just don't have the sentimental value many old schoolers have. I never found any differences between the pro performer and pro freestyle tour frame and forks. Only difference I saw was a few of the parts.

I cracked my frame around the seatclamp area, and others snapped the forks in half where the holes for the cables are.

I never did like GT's...all the angles just seemed to relaxed to do anything useful with other than ride ramps. 

I have a Dyno(not sure of the model, or year) right now that I built up with newer parts and a 1 1/8 minimal offset fork.  I remember liking how they rode BITD, but now when I ride it...nothing.   It's not my thing.  I much prefer newer bikes.

Never understood collecting bikes, but than to each their own I guess.  For three thousand dollars,  I could build up several really nice bikes that I could RIDE.

I wound up with a concussion and a broken hand because of those piece of sh*t forks.  Back in 89!
