    LL, you may need to bend the derailleur mount a little or see if it gives you more room to drop the tail of the derailleur cage. Front looks OK, tail is too high by about 2mm.

    That's very nice. Lack of top tube lug outlining, painted seat stay tops & color of head tube would indicate an '86 (the 85's had hand-painted lug outlines, machined seat stay tops & a blue/gray...

    It's a 23 inch frame, hard to see the head tube but it's too big to be a 21 and too small to be a 27.

    Agreed that a good price would be $250-300 and there's an easy $100 worth of extras there but...
