That looks very cool, and price isn't unreasonable. If I didn't already have the Stumpjumper Sport, as well as a 1986 (I think?) Schwinn Cimarron (thanks to wrk101), I'd probably jump on it. I have limited space, in my garage as well as head, for projects, so I want to get these two 'birds in the hand' fixed up and see how they work out.

Unless a green Cimarron turns up...that would turn my head.

I dropped the Stumpjumper off at the PC shop today. RAL 2011 looks like a very close match to the original paint. I know I could choose any color, but I'll likely stick to the orange, and put velocals repro decals on.
