I am looking for this exact color, 23in.

I'll take frame only, whole bike. I'll pay shipping.

Thanks!

1988 Prelude, if you're looking to date it, for your searching. According to the catalog, it came in yellow/white fade color scheme that year, too.

Don't know where you'd find one.

Since @Lascauxcaveman did the hard part in identifying the bike, I'll suggest setting up saved searches on eBay and SearchTempest.

I had that exact same one and I think I sold it to a bike shop called Bullseye in Denton, TX, you might try with Kevin the owner the do ship.

Also had a white/yellow I sold to another north texas bike shop called Sprockets, this one was more recent.

Good luck.

^That one's an '89, I think. Very similar.

Finally found one in mint condition. It took forever to find, and I overpaid, but I should have it by the end of the week.

Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt. And a snow globe. And key fob.

I hope your bike rules the universe for you!

Best wishes!
