Very few of my bike purchases make sense from an objective perspective. Honestly, I prefer beat up frame with no good components. They're like a blank canvas. If you get a bike that's in decent shape...

It looks like many of you have taken pity on abused and misfit bikes and have made some silk purses out of them.

Kinda doubt that.

No seat tube bottle bosses says no later than '88.
Morse code pattern paint says '87.
Fork crown says circa '87 as well.

Early 90's would already have the Thron Super decal.

I've been overhauling my 9-speed Ergo shifters roughly annually, but the spring carriers have only needed replacing twice that I can remember. That's about once every 8-10 years. YMMV.
