This is a pretty cool one ...

Its a real early Mountain Goat made by Jeff Lindsay. He began making MTBs in 1981 and he didn't make a ton. This is #12 so its likely one of the first few dozen he made.

Unfortunately no fork or bar stem combo :| Anyone have one?

The backup plan is to do a sort of Cali themed build with all high end early 80s left coast bits.

Yeah. Down to the bare metal and back again. Same colour though. Its a super dark metallic grey fade (almost black). I'll have someone match the original livery as best they can.

Basically a Deluxe, but I think its a bit earlier than the first bikes Mtn Goat called a Deluxe.

8) ooo i like that, would like to see a pic of the whole frame too :)

The shaped tube reminds me of Colnago frames, do you know what steel it is?

Very nice

Very cool! I have the Goat brochures from the 80’s so will have a look at tubing etc. Think Jeff used tandem tubing for certain tubes.
