'80's candy red survivor - yum.

I picked this up as a partially-og complete from Stevenbven (Thanks again Steve) last year, I just couldn't resist this candy red survivor. The f/f, headset, bb, spc, caliper, and wheelset were all original; I completed it with period-correct components I had. If I'm not careful, I'm gonna end up with at least one of each of the second-gen Powerlite frame types too :)
