KHS 1987 John Howard Triathlon Pro

Here is a recent acquisition from the internet. A KHS John Howard Signature Triathlon Pro from 1987. This was a $499 bicycle in its day. At about 23 lbs., it came with all the latest Shimano technology available. 6-Speed SIS Shimano Index Shifting, Bio-Pace chainrings and SLR Aero brake levers. The bicycle was also spec’d with an alloy quill stem and alloy pedals. Clipless pedals were just starting to take over the market but total domination from Look/Time/Mavic/Shimano was still a few years away.
