Well that was good timing......just 30 mins ago finished re-building my 1988 Jamis Dakota!
I've got history with this bike (although not this actual one
) and will be adding a build thread to readers bikes soon

About the bike... its a 1988 Jamis Dakota with a full 6-speed Deore MT60 groupset.
The wheels are Araya RM25's
shod with Panaracer Timbuk 2 tyres.
Steering is courtesy of Ritchey. The saddle is just some pos I've put on while I attempt to re-cover the original Selle Turbo
I toyed with having the frame stripped and re-coated, but I searched a long time to find one of these to replace the one I had stolen in 1990, and this one is in a similar condition to how mine was bitd.
For that reason its just had a damn good clean and t-cut. Will be riding this A LOT so wasn't too worried about the finish being perfect.
I know, I know... 2 pics only.... but check the 'faux' fillet brazing
