Many, many thanks. Even the Counterpoint guy liked it.
The ads on those pages are so cool.

That was the exact bike I bought back in '86, and then put up after very few miles (and getting married). It then became the bike that got me back into cycling in 2003.

Funny, I took it in to a LBS to get tuned up and didn't recognize what I was seeing (STI and funny tubes), and the mechanics barely recognized what I had brought in to them.
