    Pretty sure that's an 89. Fairly rare one with the chromed seat lug.

    interesting that your model name is in a dark color, while the one on my identical frame (but smaller size) is yellow.

    I have a bag of 50 of those 6/7/8 speed connector pins, happy to mail you a couple of them if that helps at all. Bought 'em in bulk years ago and I'll never go through all of them.

    You mention it's a newer free hub, is it 126 7 speed or 130 8/9/10 speed that requires a spacer to fit the 7 speed cluster? If 130, is the spacer in front of or...

    That bike needs nothing but some attention. Service the BB, hubs and headset and make sure the gearing is correct for you. Put on some good (read: expensive) tires and you'll be just fine.

    Very nice. Welcome to the club.
