Got it stripped and ready for paint. Was suprised how easily it came apart, bottom bracket has no pitting. The headset however is fubar so I'll be hunting for a 1" XC pro.

Paint will be platinum silver with yellow decals as per 1991 European catalogue. Full Suntour XC Pro, IRD seatpost and Umma Gumma tyres, grips and saddle.


Do you have a picture of that bike in the 1991 European catalogue?

Sourced a set of the original wheels for this bike, Specialized BXL21 rims with XC Pro greaseguard hubs, DT Swiss double butted spokes and a 12-28 cassette.

Gave them a quick wipe down and wrapped them in a nice set of Umma Gumma Pro Control/S and More Extreme/S

Should be cool with Umma Gumma saddle and grips
