Here is my most recent acquisition - bought off ebay in a moment of madness (though obviously I'm secretly quite pleased). Of course I had to pay as much to ship it to the UK from L.A. as it cost in the first place - madness, like I said.

The spec is all original, bar the tyres (one Crossroads, one Ground Control while I look for original Stumpjumper tyres).

I'll post better pictures when I can.

Frame - Special Touring Series Cro-Moly
Fork - Cro-Moly Biplane style
Rims - Araya 26 x 1.75"
Hubs - Suzue nutted
Spokes - DT Stainless Steel 3 cross
Tyres - Specialized Ground Control/Crossroads
Pedals - MKS BMX-7 silver
Cranks - TA Cyclo Tourist
Chain - Sedis
Rear Cogs - Suntour 5 speed
Bottom Bracket - Tange
Front Derailleur - Suntour ARX
Rear Derailleur - Suntour ARX
Shifters - Suntour Mighty
Handlebars - Specialized IV
Stem - Specialized BMX 4 bolt (putter style)
Headset - Specialized alloy
Brakes - Mafac tandem cantilever
Brake levers - Tommaselli Racer
Saddle - Specialized Stumpjumper
Seat Post - SR Laprade
Serial number - T2C00428

A bit older than I generally go for, but there is no getting away from the fact that is special. So very clean.
