I don't have much information about the bike. I bought it a few days ago, I'm now the third owner. The one who sold it to me had not really used it because the frame was a bit too small for him. I guess the original owner was not riding it a lot as well, because there are nearly no signs of usage. Just a few dents form leaning the bike against a wall. All the components except tires are original from around 1991.

Honestly, this bike and all the parts are in such surprisingly good condition, it is as if this teleported in from 1991. I loved this bike back then and it brings back memories. Nice catch. Beautiful ride you have there.

Stunning. Could you get a close-up of the shifters? I don't believe I've seen them before.

Really nice bike but more importantly how does it ride and what is the weight?
