Is this a stumpy? Looks like that's what it says but doesn't look like one to me

Looks very similar to a mid 80s Stumpjumper but I must say that seat stays are odd. Most stumpys with the three cable guides on the top tube either had the seatstay caps like a road bike or had the fastback stay. Could be a re-sprayed Rockhopper?

I think this is a genuine stumpy....know one back then would go to the trouble of painting and re-labelling a hopper to that standard.....either way though.....its a very nice early Specialized for sure 8)

Looks like a 1985 Stumpjumper!
