I could have had the rear end colour matched - that would only have been £300 (on top of 145!). It would have been cheaper to get it wet painted but i wanted a tough durable finish so powdercoat it was.
The linkagaes would have to have been stripped of their current finish to be powder coated properly and i couold'nt be arsed!
If the Serial No on the bottom bracket is correct it's a 93 production for the 94 year (starts with a 93)
The stem and bar are staying for now - i'd struggle to get suitable Specialized spec'd ones let along on a budget of err very little!
For now it'll have to settle for period (ish) instead of period correct.
Which reminds me to chase up free flow for the shock and get the large chainring off to file down the offending shift pins.
Very interesting indeed, so this was produced in 1993. Have you compared it to the one in the 1994 catalogue? Something must have happened in R&D at Specialized between them doing the pic's for the catalogue and actually releasing the bikes for production.
I actually do have an S-Works Ti stem going spare if you are interested. PM me if you want to talk about a deal of some kind. Also I would like to hear more about the shock too, aren't they doing some part exchange deal or is that only in the US?
