All OG except for the seat

I get in touch with this local guy who's all like: "Hey man, I got this real nice '87 GT Vertigo!  Come check it out!"

So, I go check it out.

"Uhm... sorry bro... this is a '97 serial, not an '87 bike."  (serial YC9706xxxx)

I show him my online reference.

"Are you sure, man?  I don't know, man.  I was told it's an '87.  You can't believe everything online."

"Whatever, bro.  Pretty sure that you're wrong, and that I'm right.  But, I'm digging the green/blue decals over that chrome, so I'll still take it... but not for anything near your asking price.  You get '97 bucks for a '97 bike."

And so it went.  Re-greased everything, added the 1 missing Tech77 lever, connected a new cable, and that was pretty much it.  This is actually a smooth rider.  Was considering replacing the tires/seat/grips/pedals/sprocket with neon green to match the decals.... thoughts?
