Thanks guys, I will contact them about the decals. I really like the green but it's pretty beat up and I love the raw Al look. It does have the hanger, but it is broken. Think I can still get one? Thanks for the measurements! Will post pics when it is rawwwww.

The paint/primer on this guy has been stubborn for whatever reason. I've been laboriously sanding most of it off, with fairly good results. This is after about 10hours of work.. I got bored/frustrated a bit (read: ADD) and started building it up. Still to come: XT 770 Cranks, building up a Paul Word/Mavic 517 Wheelset and hopefully M951 rear brake and Avid BB7 front with M951 levers. Labor of love!
Cheers

I used to have the same bike in 99, its not an S Works, but it was still a great bike, and the colour was great.

The hanger should still be available, they were common to a lot of the Specialized frames in the 90s hence there are still a lot around.
