83 expedition

Apologies for cross-posting to C&V regular--I should have posted here first.

I'm almost certain that this is an 83 Expedition that I pulled in for $100.

It's a mash of parts--I think the DT shifters might be original, as well as the crankset, but the FD and RD don't match, and I don't think the bike shipped 700C. Though it is nice to see that the BR-MC70 reaches okay--I know people have a hard time converting these machines to 700c.

So, needs work, but I think it is still a score. Too big for me at 58cm so will transfer the parts I want to the 56cm frame (also 1983) I already own and then sell the frame on.
