Brandon, I sold those. As a stock bike, the equipment was: Crankset: Mighty Tour double, 34/52 Wheels: 27" Araya rims, Sunshine Gyromaster hubs, 5-speed 14-28 Suntour Pro Compe freewheel--when charted the gearing made no sense for any kind of riding! Derailleurs: Suntour Cyclone front and Cyclone GT rear with barcon shifters Brakes: Dia Comp centerpulls on those brazed posts with Gran Compe levers, qrs and adjusters in levers Handlebar: SR Randonneur, SR stem, cheesy thin cloth tape, also similarly cheesy cheap Unicanitor copy saddle with bad quilted padding and vinyl cover. A later version used an SR Stronglight 99-copy crank in a triple ring, the gearing made a lot more sense that way.

Happy reassembling--I think you'll do a much better job than the original spec person did!
