I got this bike from my sister's friend's brother (interesting note my sisters friend and the brother have since passed away). He bought the bike new and I'm sure paid a pretty penny for it. I got the bike in about 1985 and have had it since. I'm guessing that it is about an 81 model. I raced the bike occasionally as an amateur. I picked up the bike from my mothers house and I'm going to work on restoring it.
About the bike, I've always thought the bike was special, but now with some research I'm understanding why.
It's got a gold shimano 600 crank. It's got araya rims, tuffneck 2000, suntour seat clamp, bullseye hubs, stronglight headset. I never remember having the cantilever brakes on it, as I always remember having a set of gold diacomp mx brakes. I have now repaired the canti brakes, just need to add cables.
Has anyone seen the square brake mounts before? I'll get a better pic up eventually.
Also, I always thought the bike was particularly light compared to other bikes.
I'm glad I kept up with it all these years!
