1990(?) Specialized Sirrus 58cm black and yellow

Hello all,
Having a heck of a time finding a catalog link or really info on older specilized models at all.
I am pretty sure, from seeing other members post similar, that this is a 1990 model. Not sure what it originally came with but I am thinking the handlebars and pedals are, in the least, not original. The brakes and levers are RX100 the FD says Mountian LX while rear is DeoreXT. Cranks also say Mountian LX so I'm thinking that the Deore may be the later addition but without a catalog I've got no clue. Rims are Wolber.

I'm looking for guesstimates on resale. I fear it my be a touch too small for me and if I find that to be the case back to CL it goes.

Any info on pricing or even reviews of the ride would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Yeah it's in pretty good condition. A few scuffs here and there on the frame, other than that and a missing break pad it's pretty clean.

For future reference to anyone with one.
Sold for 125 with new bar tape and brake lines.
Took about 5 days. Had one person interested first night at 150 but I couldnt meet right away and they flaked on me so I dont think it was priced too far off even there.
Also its fresh winter rain and cold up here. Selling in the sun would likley have helped me move it quicker.

That surprises me at $125. Not sure where you are located, but I'd have thought you might have gotten a bit more.

Maybe it is less of a market softening and more of a shift to something different in the vintage mien.

Well I bought it for $40 and spent about $35 on consumables so I feel pretty good about it.
I'm in portland oregon. Generally the market is quite good up here, but it drops off steeply in the winter. I likley could have gotten closer to $200 with some patience and summer weather on my side.

For future reference you can find specialized catalogs here someone got a great deal for $125 IMHO, I sold a 93 Specialized Allez Sport for $200 this summer.
