Took way too long but we finally cleaned up the '84 WTR that we got from EL. The early WTRs were fillet brazed unlike the newer TIF welded frames. This is one of the earliest bikes that I have seen with the team green/orange paint. The not subtle two tone really makes the Henry James fork crown pop.

It would be great to find some original style decals for it. These are flaking pretty badly but I haven't found this style for sale anywhere.
