hum, in the process of deal making see if you can get the seller to give you a component list. It would really help in the decision/bargaining.

Found this for you. It looks pretty original...http://velospace.org/node/4782

Edit: Maybe not, Fir/Campy/Miche/3t... Suntour Sprint? doesnt make much sense. But if it is original its an awesome group and I would still snap it an a heartbeat. Sprint is really nice stuff.

Thanks for the tip, really will not be able to tell much about the bike until I actually see it. I do remember him saying it had Suntour components on it. Of course I will take tons of pics for all to enjoy.

That bike is also Suntour Sprint 9000 equiped. The position of the limit screws on the RD indicates Suntour, and the logo on the FD (the part that looks to be a slightly different color) indicates Sprint 9000.
