That's how I proved it was mine when I recovered it, so I'm sure it's there!

Edited to say I found a page from a 1987 catalog that seems to show my bike. Only contradiction is the brakes, which the catalog describes as "Ross alloy power brakes."
Yes, it's definitely no older than 1987, as that is a SunTour Alpha 3000 derailleur, which was introduced in 1987. The optional colour that year was "Snow White" with red forks and bars, which is what you have. The stem looks black in the catalogue, as opposed to blue but we've seen some variations in stem and bar colour combinations. Despite the name difference, the brakes are OEM. I posted some blown up pictures of the brakes from the ad copy, in the other thread.
