....and what happened with the note on the unused bike? Would love to hear a good ending to that story.

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?


Take a look at my 1982 Stumpy. It's even more beautifull than his one!

That's just the way the geometry was in those days. And they did use them on technical trails. You just have to get used to it! :wink:

You are right. It's gorgeous! :-) I really like the fork and the color. Starting to see what the fuzz is all about...

Who made these frames? In 1982 I guess they were hand built?
