Is this the original finish? I ask because it has the old style EM decals on a later Motorola finish. I have a Professional (from about '84) that has theses decals on top of a Telekom finish. It is also weird that my bike is in a Telekom finish but the bike is from '84 and Telekom didn't happen until late 80's early 90's.

It is original paint... and I've seen several others from the same year with the flat crown fork and this logo. I dunno. It's not a race bike as there is no number hanger, so maybe that explains it?

Mine doesn't have the flat fork crown but it does have a number hanger. It also has the rear brake cable run at 7 o'clock on the TT (two cable stops, exposed in between).

That's another nice one, definitely a classic!
On mine I was going for the old meets new, a frame that's hand made u can ride all day with bullet proof DA7800 10spd groupo, with all newer American classic bling to finish the build!
It even has a ceramic BB! So smooth!!!

Hands down the best bike I've ever ridden on the road...

I can see why the US Postal saddle would be so appropriate. White wrap.

Yeah. It's my backup CE (I have an embarassing wealth of Merckx bikes right now) and after building it up a year and a half ago I rode it a few times and then put it away. Never got final build pics posted so figured I'd do that while it was still in my possession. The color of green is very interesting, more like a pearl, and the chrome is outstanding. My guess is later than 93 but no later than 95.
