After comparing my 2 Stumpy's that were made in 1982. I have changed the modelyear of this one. This one was made in December 1982 and is a modelyear 1983. A few changes were made; cable stops are the most obvious.
Thanks to Jeff from FirstFlightBikes! :wink:

Incredible..........cool to see these old bikes.

One thing I really don't get about the earlier mtb's are the very relaxed geometry on the frames. I guess they didn't use them for very technical trails?
