Best as a local sale or a part out. Dearhead plus triple crankset alone have pretty good value.

Stand over is going to be the thing, check that one so you don't miss out on a sweet looking bike. I wish it was 1" taller.

Someone had posted a Suntour "Head Binder."

I had to have one- either next bike or the next one I rebuild.

Yep. I went out to Seattle in the late '80s, and used to visit their old store up on 11th St. I think it was. It's a Value Village now, lol, or at least last time I was there. We used to buy their old rental stuff, like sleeping bags, pretty cheap.
I think this bike's a bit small for me too, lol. GLWS.

That's the understatement of 2017 thus far.

Year?

Do you know what year this bike is? I have the exact same one and am looking for a year? Even a range would be helpful. 80s? Early 90s?

It should be early 80s. The stem and Shimano parts should have dates or date codes
