I have been riding this bike since 1989.
Still love it.Super comfortable and never let me down. An amazing piece of bicycle technology.
I will say your restoration is remarkable. I'm afraid my bike is not so pretty!

They pretty much ride the same, dirty or polished. I had an Ironman Carbon from 1988, and the fork was way too flexible, but it was so comfortable on centuries. When I had a chance to get this, with the fork problem "fixed," I gave it a shot, and do not regret it. Thanks for your comment.
