Finally found something worthwhile in the adds. This bike was 15 mins away on craigslist. Guy said he bought a restaurant on an island and was selling all his stuff before he left.

Team Avi, needs saddle and post, $50.

A little dusty, but it doesn't look to have gotten much use. Not sure of the year .... thinking about '91?

I'll clean it up and see if I can make sense of the serial. Post more detail pics once I get a chance to give it a once over.

Great find that one. Looks like an 18" GT frame, so about 20.5" when measured centre to top.

EDIT: Actually, scratch that, it looks to be bigger than an 18". More like a 20" CtoC.
