well i picked up a 89 expert over the weekend.

it's in okay shape but far from great.

still has the original sampson clipless pedals and avenir gel seat.. well what is left of it.. the shell.

brakes need some serious adjustment.

will have to get tires and then i'll be tuning it. hope the gpx will shift a rear shimano 6 speed correctly, if not i'll have to start my search for the original suntour 7 speed freewheel. it's sitting on wolber alpine rims at the moment.. wish it came with the original araya ctl-370 and gpx hubs.. my wheelset is from a 1987 expert.

as far as finding hoods for the gpx levers.. i don't think i'll be having luck with that anytime : )
