    1981 or 1982 - Northern California (Mare Island Naval Shipyard)

    A couple notes:

    1. I had hair
    2. Custom Pink and Purple Vans - to match my Peter Weigle road bike
    3. Borrowed bike - can't remember what it was.

    I'll look around and see if I have anything good but if it was 27.2 it got used up around here - I really liked the Suntour XC's

    I have a suntour xc 26.4 seatpost. Sturdy. Except for those bolts: i stripped one of them and they are proprietary.
    I came here for the socks.

    Mostly because I have a CT stem and was trying to match stem and post (for whatever reason), but you're right. I caved and went with a NOS Deore XT.

    I'll post some pics when I get it built. Just waiting on a few things before I begin. It's going to be a garage queen, but I have another old school Cannondale M2000 I can ride when the itch hits.

    This popped up for sale near me. I'm not interested but if anyone here wants to relive the Yeti dream bike of their youth, I'd be happy to intermediate.

    Seller is asking $1200. Full M73x kit with grip shifts, the Manitou will need new MCUs

    Given the Shimano sticker and matching stem I would want to see if the insides of the dropouts were relived, making it a "Race" aka team bike

    My 1987 FRO had Simplex horizontals R and Campy F's

    This one is CO make by the plate DO's

    I wish it had a drive side shot so I could see the top tube cable stops - id had cantis originally or at least is routed for them........rigid matching fork I bet too as the stem noodle is redundant with he fork's

    $1200 is fair if you sit on it but a few more boutique parts would be nice.

    They don't make 'em anymore.......

    A wealth of non drive. Apparently he/she couldn't be bothered to turn it around. Definitely a rear canti hanger.

    Well, the levers don't overlap........

    Cool era as you can see things changing, cants to V's and the beginning of suspension, this frame is old enough to have the reinforcement on the DS wishbone CS but not new enough for actual top-pull FD mech

    1989-90 maybe into '91 = the frame anyway, parts wish-mash spans years......

    That's the trick to making a Hyperlite last 25 years - cut off all the leverage! haha
