I wanted to post a few pics of a nearly original spec IBOC I picked up today and found several threads about various years and models, but no thread collecting them together. It would be cool to see the models and changes over the years, so feel free to post yours here.

I'll start:

1989 IBOC Pro. I guess this is the first year. I wasn't looking for one, but I only needed to drive 4 miles round trip for this thing, the price was right, and it's even my size, so why not?

Blue splatter paint, straight blade forks, wishbone stays, Deore II parts:

I've ridden it around the yard a bit, I like it. Having never ridden a rigid, straight blade fork before, that was part of the appeal. I like the way the wishbone stays kinda match it at the rear.

That's mine, what do you have?

Looks like you've picked up a tidy one there Will. A bonus that it's in your big man size too :D There's a few on here but they don't seem to get the love they deserve. Maybe they're just harder to find? The 89 Team is the one I'd like......

Nice looking Mongoose (Mongeese?), that Iboc was a great find. Although surely it being the right size for you would be the 1st thing I'd think about?
I'm not too familiar with the Mongoose range, hopefully there'll be some more nice additions to this thread.

Spent hours in the freewheel shop in Nottingham drooling over one of those. Tomac in the ads I seem to remember.
