Got me this bike last saturday:
It looks quite good for it's age, because I think it's an oldie... I only remember the AlpineStars bikes had e-stays? So it should be pre-1992 I'm sure.
Owner had the drive side crank replaced with some Sakae one, the other side is this the DX crank. Brakes are also original MT-62 ones, but the levers were dia-compe and it had XT thumbshifters on. Derailleurs are also still original as are the wheels (DX hubs with Araya rims).
Only thing I would like to know, since I am gonna build it up original again: Did this bike come with those DX rapidfire shifters or did they have Deore thumbies with seperate MT62 brake levers?
Oh and any more info or a nice scan/link to the catalogue it's in would be nice as well (can't find it on mtbkataloge.de).
Now it's on to the cleaning and rebuilding, little work and should make a nice "dirt-bike" I think
