There is quite a few dings, rust and a very small dent in the top tube, looks worse than my Zebrakenko, which isn't a looker either, but if I get the sludge off the frame, I think it might look half...

Thank you.
I see the name show up in the 89 catalog, but as a mtb with 26 inch wheels with no mention after, where as this had 200gs and 700c ones, looks like I might have to dig deeper.
