Resurrecting the topic

Old steel S bikes are my absolute favorites to look at and ride. Here is mine, it looks to be a similar year to the last gray frame, Direct Drive Offroad tubing. Based on the parts and a "license registration" sticker on the seat tube that I've removed, it is a 1988-89. Only remaining parts are the stem and seatpost. This one was abandoned on the street with a rusted chain and some broken parts.

If anyone has more pics of steel Specialized mountain bikes, please post them up here! There needs to be more cataloging of these bikes on the web. Firstflightbikes is a good start for sure!
