You almost nailed it. It's a Merlin frame from '89, #471. The flex stem I won in a bike shop lottery. It was kind of a cool item in those days. I still have the original Deore XT group on there, but the front brake is about gone where it attaches to the frame. I rode it into a bike shop in Wellington NZ last year when my bottom bracket acted up. Those young guys had some fun working on it and were really nice to me, taking me out to dinner and beers after they finished. I love this old bike and will ride it until either one of us breaks.
