Nice bike! from your before description you did a great job. You could sit and peel the decals off but that would take away for the time you could be riding. I would just leave them be.

I am thinking this is a '90 or 91. I believe '92 and later would have had a BiAxial PowerOval sesigned frame the bubes would eb ovalized. the original group was likely something like Exage 500LX I think this was just before STX. with a 50T chainwheel you'll need a Deore FD from the early '90s when MTB typicall had 28, 38, 48 chainwheels.
