/zombie thread revival....
yours is nicer than mine...thought mine was only $150. Found this for sale locally on eBay last week.
Sort of getting there:
A black Flite is on the way, you can see I pulled the "Post Moderne" in favor of an old (but still heavy) XT SP-M730, my trusty old M737 pedals and a slightly better stem. The patina of my old pedals and the XT post match the bike pretty well.
I love the finish on this, but I fear it's too far gone (there are a lot of bad spots) to preserve. There are some real ugly spots. Will probably have my powdercoat guy match it as closely as possible though. Then hope I can find some replacement decals.
