Nice! I really like that.

I'm building up a hardrock for my mom from the same era, seeing your specialized makes me want to get it done asap.

Thanks; I agree, along with a silver 1982, and the all black 1992 M2 S-works with the red S on the headtube- they're the best looking stumpys imo.

Loved them then and still do... fantastic.

My mate Yetiman will be very jealous, he regrets selling his.


Thanks; I sold my first, and always wanted one again. Hope I don't end up selling this one.

Haha, it's true. I can chain it up outside the cafe, and come back within 20 minutes to find it as I left it, so definitely a street sleeper. While also being fit for abuse- a true retrobeater. Thanks for the love :D

Oh, and thanks- she's my life- my daughter, not the bike haha.
