1. Pictures
2. Specific questions
3. More pictures
4. Disassemble all bearings, clean, and grease, i.e. hubs, BB, headset
5. Begin by cleaning with mild dish soap (Dawn) and water
6. Even more pictures

Welcome to BF-C&V.

Use google to search this forum on any topic you please.

In 1984 the World Sport was significantly improved, with a cromoly main frame and alloy wheels. Date will be coded on the headbadge, made by Giant.
