|1984 the Triath-Elan was launched. It was the Elan in another colour. The Elan in 1984 was mint green and had an Elan decal on the top-tube, whereas the Triath-Elan was Steel Blue Pearl with a “Triath-Elan” decal on the top tube, otherwise they were identical. Both ‘models’ (colours) ran for 1984, then the Elan name was dropped.Pics of Doug Havach’s 1984 Triath-Elan in original finish, the Old Town Cyclery seat tube decal was added later (pics by Sarah, when of the Old Town Cyclery, Lenexa, Kansas).1985 Catalogue excerpts, for Triath-Elan and|
