I had been looking for a bike to restore for a while, I was originally after a 1990's Kona, but then this came along:
I think it has all the origional parts on it except the saddle, rear mech and chain (posssibly the chainrings).
Tange Prestige Frame
XT f. mech M730
XT M730 cranks with Specialized rings!
XT hubs (smoother than my 2008 Stumpy!)
Onza bar ends - as new
T Bone stem (Prestige)
XT M732 levers
XT M733 calipers
Onza bar-ends (as new) - my dream part when I was at school!
It's been de-mudguarded and de-panniered, but thats all I've had time to do so far.
Does anyone know what the exact year of manufacture was? I know it was late 1980's due to the groupset.
Or any other info on it?
Also I don't ever remember Specialized making chainrings?
Or finally does anyone have a copy of the catalog from this year?
