Default Santana Moda

Just signed up today because, first I bought a Fat and second I wanted to see the pictures of the Moda in this thread. I have the later TIG welded Moda with trigger shifters.(see photos) I alway thought it was a 1990 but I could be mistaken. The pictures show how it looked when purchased, I have since installed NOS tires and a Flite saddle.
