My twelve year old Son has just become a Member of the Tribe! 8)
Just picked up a deep blue Kokopelli Hardtail and was trying to date it.
There is no serial number and originally came with Cantilever brakes.
I've read that they were made for the Euro Market....but Im in the States.
Anyone remember the timeline and some historical background?
