I believe a LBS called CAPS(Vancouver CANADA) had the frames gold chrome plated. I could be wrong, does anyone else have any info
I do believe that CAPS sold the gold colored KYZ, but I am 100% certain that it was not a color exclusive to them, for instance the one I acquired was purchased in Red Deer, AB in 1984 (Sports World), and I have heard from someone in Puerto Rico that they recall seeing this color there too.
Anyway, I will be using the following from the original bike on the current build:
-single hole Elina saddle (appears to be rare in the scheme of things)
-DC 890 rear
I have also found a number of OS parts that I will be using, including this wheel set:
My goal is to build her the way it may have looked back in the day - not the way we would build her today (hope that makes sense).
