Recently picked up this very tired '89 Stumpjumper Comp locally, paint is pretty rough but bike came complete and with a few historic upgrades....

Front end had been changed at some point in its life, fork is not original Specialized but I have a spare one and front rim is wrong. I usually like to keep original paint, but this ones too far gone so a candidate for a full strip down and re-paint. Under the grime most of the parts are in decent shape.

The white one wasn't shown in the '89 brochure but believe original spec was as per link...

Spoken to Retro Decals already and they can do a new set of decals, so full strip down soon!

Looks like a great basis for a project.. are you planning to change the flexstem as well as the forks? It's quite a cool retro stem but theyre not for everyone!

Thanks, yeah full strip down, gather a few parts etc, the flexstem will not be staying - i'm not a fan! Will go back to a regular quill stem.

Hi!
One question : which diameter has the zoom seatpost and if 26.8 would you sell it?
Thanks for your efforts, cheers Christoph
