Just pretty much finished this the other day...kind of cool that was made by Steve 25 years ago this month. Serial Number indicates a March 1988 frame.
I had lots of fun with this project..constructive comments always welcome.
Thanks again to Aemmer for convincing me to go for it and to G-O-B for selling it to me.
Here are the specs and photos. (To make the photos larger you have to click on them a few times...or you can go to the second page where I posted directly from Photobucket)
All the parts replaced were replaced with exactly what was on the bike from the original build. I was told by former owners, BP and GOB, that the bike was all original. The only differences from the original are the King no logo headset (originally a Specialized) and the handlebar (originally a Specialized also). I have kept every original part and bagged and labeled them.
