Great job, I've got the same bike and was toying with a resto.
What paint did you use on forks etc?

Nice job, paint look great, what did you use in place of Zolatone?

FWIW, I wouldn't give too much credence to the serial number in terms of dating the frame, it clearly has the constant diameter seat stays, marketed as "Afterburners" and introduced on the 1991 bikes.

Hmmm so is it a 1990 or a 1991? It has the fatter seat stays which would point towards 1991 in which case the frame decals should be colour coded to the forks? Just being picky on what is a nice bike though!

If you go back to the first post and follow it through you should get your answer,i was confused with this bike from the start aswell as it was sold as a 1991 bike but is really a 1990 frame.it has the 1991 stays but has 1990 numbers :? ,could of been one of the very first 1991 frames printed with 1990 numbers(mistake on there end??)(numbers are of late 1990)It should have thew florescent decals to match the forks but it wanted white for a slightly different look.
The bike on the first picture is this one when i got it.

Ahh ok! Well I have a one of each! The white decals and the colour coded! And I just bought another 1991 Eldridge but this time for the wife! Still a top job and looks great!
