Just awesome. Great color, great condition! And those chainstays....man, that rear wheel is somewhere near Genoa. '85 was a very good year.

Now if I could find another blue Blackburn bottle cage and a blue Blackburn front lowrider rack.

The paint had quite a few blemishes, but I just did touch-up instead of a repaint.

Boy, 620's are popular lately!

There's yours, BigStick's '84 in another thread, and my recent acquisition of an '83; I guess they're popular for a reason!

Mmmm. Nice. I hope mine looks as good when I'm finished cleaning it up.
What did you use for touch up paint?
Is that an original working Helicomatic hub on the rear?
Looks great!

It's all original minus the bar tape and tires.

The crank is a Shimano forged N600 50/45/28.

My next search is for an 83 620...those had the most beautiful paint scheme... the silver and baby blue!

Beautiful bike.

Mine is the most comfortable bike I've ridden.

Wow - what a classic time machine! (Did it come with a Flux capacitor as well?)
