when i picked this up, the seller then told me about the stuck seatpost (might have not bid if i had known from the beginning) well it was a mission, and i am happy with the restoration, has rust, but i have sprayed lots of lube inside the frameset, and it rides like a nice typical steel stead

full lx goupset, and Tange Infinity DB chromo frameset

That looks very nice.

Did you haggle a discount for the stuck post?

I want one of these now! This and the orange '91 model are both lovely.

I spent Saturday riding my old steel GT down steep things for fun, massive grin on my face. Enjoy!
