Most of the major parts are original. The bottom bracket was stuck when I got the bike. Whacking it with a hammer a couple hundred times a day, for a week, loosened it without any damage to the threads.
The original thick brake cables and housing were in good enough shape to keep on the bike. It may seem like a small thing, but to me, the thinner modern cables don't look right matched with the thick link wires of the older canti's.
This is the third 90's Stumpy I've owned. They were really great bikes, for the money back then.

Very nice indeed!

If you need some new thick Specialized brake cables just let me know. I might have some available!
