    I love the Black Chrome on my High Sierra. Only problem with it is that it appears to get pretty beat- as the "chrome" portion of it shows through every little nick.

    I'm not so much of a fan of...

    Close, but no cigar- it's CLEARLY all stemming from 1987's UHF.

    Even these things from 1948 or 1974 or whatever, they KNEW it would happen in 1987- so they changed it to "badges."

    Robbie's right- the square base of the boss fits into the square "hole" in the plate on the shifter.

    What wheels are those? Are they 700C?

    That looks like a bike to RIDE- the mix of modern and "vintage" is nothing if it improves your ride.

    You might want to check either the date or the model...
