I'd be curious what about it makes you question the seller's description of the bike as an '84 (attributed to the builder.) Can't say for sure from the graphics, it's repainted. The milling and certainly investment cast bits like the brake brdge are certainly 80's-something...but I'd "really" like to hear what makes this (or doesn't I suppose) an '84? Richie-o-philes?

'76 Sachs, no engraving, no milling no fancy solid brake bridge, no disappointments in the 27 years I've had it!
