I have one of these bikes. It was actually my first "real" bike that I bought back when it was new. From 1992 to just a month ago it sat in a storage room in my grandparents' house. I was flabbergasted to find that the tubes even still hold air! Don't worry, I'll be replacing them anyway. The SIS needs a bit of adjusting, but it still shifts like a champ in friction. What a "find". Can't believe I let this thing languish for so long.
Anyway, my question is on the geometry of the bike. I really like how it feels and I've been wanting something to start doing some club rides with and hopefully even some brevet riding later in the year. Before I go through the hassle of mounting one up, has anyone tried a rando style handlebar bag on this bike? Just from eyeballing it, it seems to be a pretty low trail front end. I don't plan on mounting any panniers on it, just a rando style front rack (will need p clamps). I also have a silver hupe to use for a saddle bag but I don't think I'll really even need that.
And... anyone know of a way to keep the awesome blue/white fade paint job and get rid of the awful 80s random-geometric-shape sticker scheme?
