Here's a bit of 1988 for all you retrofiends. Members with a long memory may have seen this sweetie before. Now brought out of retirement and knocked together as a runaround for m'lady.

Not sure on the model - Cascade maybe? Anyone know of a brochure from that year? (In case you don't remember, it was a very good year: a very good year for small-town girls and soft Summer nights ....)

Needs a longer chain, the XC Compe pedals I stupidly sold, and a nice wee pump.

I like very much! Beautiful and functional. Understated and elegant. Nice one.
