Lovely bike and great find! I see it still has its original tires, proper time capsule then.

I just restored its brother:

Yep, that´s a nice ride; I´ve made some changes since the last pics:

FSX Fork to match carbon tubes

Image

Control Tech stem for a better position

Image

Control Tech stem must go with a Control Tech bar ¡!

Image

A broken Trek seatpost lead up to an EDR Ti. post

Image

Last series of Ringlé´s QR´s:

Image

And this is the final result, hope you like it.

Very nice! I love it.
But man, check your cam. The colours seem faded or pale somehow... doesn't do the bike justice. ;)
