Hello,

I also have had this problem 3 times since 1987, I got my bike new and the first time this happened I though that the chain was jumping teeth, but in fact, third gear dog was rounded and the shifting fork had to be replaced as well. Big Job, no fun

It will continue to do this. 87's and I believe 88's were riddled with this problem. I had one and it did the same thing. To bad because otherwise it was a great machine.
