U sure the rings werent added. Not many bikes had Bullmoose bars by 86'. Could be a holdover but also looks like Ishiwata tubing decal which was also seen more often earlier. FD is Deerhead, looks like rear was updated or maybe just at changeover to newer Deore.
Nice bike either way. Dig the...
The blue 87 is iconic and one of the coolest freestyle bikes of the 80's. Drillium style brake, seat clamp and of course the 4 holes on the ends. They are Taiwan and some Japan that year, but many bmx came from overseas.
