Pains me to see the rear brake routed on the ds. They got it right -- er, correct -- in the small photo.

Quoting from the magazine article, " Otherwise, there's nothing you need to do but put in the miles and enjoy one of 1987's hottest bikes equipped with what's destined to be a most popular component group".
However, I had to add aerobars and gripshift for me to put in the miles.
