Yamaguchi Track Pursuit on the Bay

I was told by Yamaguchi that this frame was one of the Gold Medal winners in the team Pursuit event in the 1992 Olympics under the "Performance" name. When I got it I sent him the Serial # and asked if he had any of the original decal for a restoration. He told me he had none of the "performance" decals but did send the Yamaguchi decal kit.
