1989 Specialized Sirrus Frame

Frame looks to be in good all around condition.

A few marks and scratches. Maybe some rust on one of the cable guides.
Decal is ripped on the top tube and pealing off.

Worth $85?

The Sirrus is usually over-shadowed by its sibling the Allez, which is the more sought after of the two. My understanding is vintage Sirrus is to Allez what to today's Roubaix is to Tarmac. Where the Sirrus is a more sport-oriented frame and the Allez is more race-oriented.

If you research a bit, you'll find those who say in some years, the frames were identical between the two with paint and components being the only difference.

All that said, I think anything less that $100 is a solid deal for a good frame like this if you've got the components laying around to put on it. I don't think it's worth it if you have to invest several hundred dollars accumulating the parts to go with it.

$85? Sure, if it fits you.

I happen to like that generation of paint and graphics, so if it were my size I would absolutely go for it.

If you're unsure about the colors or are considering a repaint, you might want to keep looking.

Not much meat (if any) in it as a flip.
