Looks like its fully-lugged to me, and I think its earlier than '89.
If it weighs 20lbs, I'd give him £150 for it right now!

The one I'm holding for coomber is indeed fully lugged and has other neat features like semiwrap around seat stays.

20lbs I would say is pretty optimistic.... to say the least.
