I bought this bike about a year and a half ago from the first owner. He got in 1990 when the mtb craze was hitting the Netherlands and, over the years, replaced every single component. So basicly I got myself a frameset. the toptube specialized decal was missing and the rest was damaged. The paint also didn't look like much but after a good polish the metallic purple came out really good. There was also stone chip, but nothing a little touch-up paint couldn't cover.
I ordered new decals from gil but didn't check on the dimensions: the seattube decal is too big and the dwontube one too small. There's some other details (maybe you experts will see) but I think all look good as it is.
anyways, I'm not too good at writing stuff down, so here's some pictures:

I had an '83 that I got from the States back then too, loved it but eventually traded it in for something newer and less used. God knows what it would be worth now!
