Bikes in those days were bright! Neon greens, pinks, yellows and blues. Paint splatter patterns were common. As were bright colors in anodized parts. When he wen't "Retro" he took it all the way! That's what set's this bike apart.

Well at least no one will steal it as long as you set it next to a regular looking bike.

Haha, but nice build!

That is one very clean piece of hardware. You could have a side business of detailing bicycles and make a fortune!

Do you mean that the limitter is all the way OUT? Having it all the way in would cause more rubbing (and possibly not even let the derailleur shift to the inner ring at all).

Sweet bike though.
