This just came home w/ me (I'll get better pics soon):
Image
Image

Anybody have a clue on the date?
Frame: Cromo, "Infiniti-Butted". Tange tubing?
Fork: KHS Cromo
Headset: No-name
Stem: No-name, paint matches frame and the front brake cable passes through it
Handlebar: Avenir "True-Temper"
Brakes: XCD cantis
Brake Levers: Suntour "Multi-Mount"
Shifters: XC Comp thumbies
Front Derailleur: XCD
Rear Derailleur: XCD
Cranks: I believe XCD (the have the same gray finish as the other XCD parts)
Chainrings: Suntour "Accu-Shift" 46-36-26
Pedals: No-name w/ toe clips and straps
Quick Releases: Suntour
Rims: Ritchey Expert Vantage (Heat-treated 6061, 450 grams)
Hubs: XCD f/r
Tires: f-Ritchey Megabite, r-Tioga Farmer John (I LOVE the look of this tread)
Saddle: Avocet Gelflex M20
Seatpost: label rubbed off
Weight: I guess somewhere around 25 lbs.

It looks like almost everything is original except maybe one of the tires but then again I don't know. It definitely needs a tuneup, hub rebuild, probably a new freewheel, brake pads, cables etc. but i'm pretty stoked.

The paint is in OK condition. I has definitely been ridden and has some scratches, scuffs, etc. and the stickers aren't in great shape. Also, the owner added stickers that I wish weren't there.

I paid US$80. Is this about right or did I get fleeced?

For $80 I think it's a bargain

Not sure if I ever posted updated shots of this whip. The bike was a mess when I got it, and it has a sticker on the stem I can't get off but it rides nicely as is. I need to replace the BB and headset this winter so she's been put away and awaiting surgery. Here she is:

Note: The cables aren't tangled anymore.

Just found some pics of my old KHS Montana Pro. The components aren't original as I bought it as a frameset. And I've hidden my face as I don't won't to be associated with purple components (Ringle hubs, Control Tech barends and Bullseye jockeys)! It's either from '93 or '94. I only had it for a short while between a '93 Kona Kilauea and a '94 Specialized Stumpjumper!

Think those photo's might be fakes, i'm fairly sure those small 5 pence pieces were not issued until later in the 1990's!
