Softride Ironman 1991

Risers installed upside down, Performance clip-on aerobars, Profile 120mm stem on a threaded/threadless adapter

Sun deep section 650c of some sort. Shimano 600 hub that feels like butter at 17 years old.

7x2. 52x12 at the high end.

They pop up on Ebay pretty frequently. Frames usually go for 500 or so. I totally lucked out with this.

Unless you mean the handlebars, in which case, you can totally build a pair out of junk bars and cheapo clip-ons.
