attached a recent eBay find - set up for my teen son to ride. Not
sure of the exact year, but IÕm guessing mid-late 80's. It has shortish
chainstays and short reach brakes, so the "good" details
(clearance, etc.) were starting to go away...
bike as pictured is all original except pedals (Shimano clipless
platforms) and Stem/Bar/Brake Levers (early 90's Salsa cro-mo, Modolo,
Shimano Tiagra). The rest of the bike is as follows: DiaCompe NSC400
sidepulls, SunTour Superbe Pro derailleurs w/SunTour "symmetric"
friction shifters, Sugino A5 crankset 52/42, SunTour Sprint hubset
with Araya rims and new Pasela 700x28 rubber - "Ultra 6"
freewheel. 126mm rear spacing (close to dishless). Tange Falcon
HS. Turbo "Bernard Hinault" saddle in unique finish (it's
about it - it's a great riding bike!
