Default 1991 Yo back on the road after many years....A single speed this time.

Bought this 6 months old from a shop owner is San Diego in 1991, when I was in college. Rode is for many, many years as a 7 speed. It got retired and sat in my basement for years. Rode a friend's IBIS Mojo of similar era that he had brought back as a single speed. Got the bug to do the same to mine. Here it is! Paint is a signal green powder coat and did an electric blue fade on the fork. I have attached a picture of the original team paint job as well. Have installed the newer v-brakes. May have to sort out cabling.... White Industry cranks, xtr v brakes, xtr wheelset, Thomson post, Easton Scandium bars, Softride stem...
