Spotted this on Gumtree recently and picked it up last weekend. As far as I can see every nut and bolt on it is 100% original spec including tyres and saddle. One of the DX shifters had been replaced with some new style tat but I had a spare identical DX module which I have subsequently fitted.
Only downside is a ding in the top tube and a few marks on the frame.
My initial thoughts were to strip it down and refurb the frame but seeing as Zolatone is so hard to replicate I thought sod it. I really like the idea of keeping the bike original so I am not doing anything with it other than adding some decals from Gil. I also like the fact that it has a few marks as it is 22 years old!
Took it out for a good spin today accompanied by little markie on his newly built 90 Eldridge. Love the ride of these old rigid bikes and she didnt miss a beat.
