I apologize in advance for any novice or newbie questions that will come from this thread. I was able to get my hands on a 1995 M 500. I rode a 1990 M 500 in college and truly grew up on that bike! The 1995 will keep me busy for now. It appears as if the headset and stem are not the original one's listed in the 1995 catalog and the head set is very loose. I would like to replace it but keep it as original as possible (suggestions for replacements?). I have not taken it completely apart and just started to clean it up ( and she looks great)! Anything I need to look out for when taking off the stem and head set? Separating the fork from the frame? The grip shifters and brakes look original as well as do the handle bars. The rims do not appear to be the Mavic M400 listed in the catalog either (suggestions for new rims and tires)? This will be my first tear down since...maybe 1990 and I am looking forward to it but do not want to wreck the bike in my excitement! As advice and pointer will be greatly appreciated!!
