very nice. A good era for Spesh definately.

Always wanted the 1988 in denucci green and magenta pink. There's a perfect example on First Flight's site too.

Its a 18.5" frame, so it should ride like a dream :D
My firemountain is only a 18" and that's really chuckable :!: I prefer a small frame....easier to handle, i always tended to smack my b*llo%ks
on the top tube on bigger bikes :cry:
Will be adding more pics on sunday.

Lid, the goonies came out in 1985.Now that makes me feel old :oops:
