1988 Auburn CR-20R

Found this for sale on a local online bike forum.  It had been in a garage for several years and hadn't been ridden since the late 90's.  I found it in this condition:
Previous owner gave me the original Auburn fork a week later.  I gave the cranks, rear triangle and fork an Oxalic Acid bath and polished the stem and cranks.  A neighbor hooked me up with a sandblast and powdercoat job.
The Stats now:
Frame/fork: Auburn
Cranks: Sugino CT 175
Wheels: Ukai 36's with Suzue hubs
Pedals: VP
Chainring: GT
Stem: Revcore
Handlebars: GT
Grips: GT/AME
Brake: Odyssey Pitbull
Brake Lever: Dia Compe Tech 77
Tires: Tioga Comp III's 1.75 rear, 2.125 front
Seat: GT freestyle
Seatpost: GT layback
Seatpost clamp: GT
