Serious Sirrus question

Sorry about the title. I'm in one of my moods tonight!


What year did Specialized introduce the Sirrus?

Also, I'm looking for a scan of the 1987 catalog, if anyone can point me in the right direction!

Thanks!

You've stumped me there (No pun intnended), I didn't come on the Specialized scene until late '87.

I am pretty sure that Sirrus was introduced around 1987 as a pared down (component-wise) and more inexpensive version of Allez. I think that 105 was probably the highest level of components they had in the 80s.

All I could find from an 87 Specialized catalogue are these component specs for Sirrus and Allez:
