Hi guys
This is a bike I bought from a work colleague around mid 90s
He purchased it new in 1989.
I sold it on to another friend two years after,of which I am the proud owner now.
Quite a bit of work to be done
Removed all the bits,ready for the powder coaters.
Plan on refinishing to original bright yellow
A mix of de-oreLX and st components
One problem I have found is the thread on the fork steerer tube has been stripped mid way down,due to loose headset.
Don't think I can re-thread.probably replace with 1" Ahead set and Ahead stem.
