I need to get this old girl on the road again. It actually measures 24.5 x 23, and is the UPPER limit of height for me.

May end up selling both if not comfortable. May at least get rid of the backup frame. No fork. 😨

Joe, you need to hook up with Ged117. See his recent posting in Frame Doesn’t Fit thread.

Is the paint on the '86 model metallic or "solid"?
I've never seen one in person and can't tell from the pics that I've seen of them.
Would love to find one with a 21" frame. Actually I'd like a 22" frame but apparently they didn't make them in that size.

Green

It is a very deep green. Kind of metallic.
My bike has faded a bit over the years. It is 34 years old.

This bike is extremely comfortable for long rides.
I believe my Trek 620 and 720 are a bit more lively.
I may get it on the road this weekend. It is supposed to rain.
