My first love! I'm hoping the size is ok. My friend once had a 20" and it was too big for me. This one is billed as a 19". Hoping it isn't actually a 20".

Now to find correct NOS (or close to it) componentry. The only sad thing is the original stem is gone. It was originally a yellow stem. If you have any sweet Shimano M730 series in NOS or close, shoot me a PM. I'm a huntin'

A pic of it!

Your first love? Don't tell that to your wife/gf!?! :-D

......anyway.....good luck with the build. I have an old Hoo Koo E Koo that I think is from '90.....or maybe even older. Will probably build it up some day....

Lol! She'd be happy if it were my first love and yet NOT my "current obsession". What the heck has happened to me. I am so goofy with this old MTB thing. I just spent the last 2 hours sipping coffee and downloading old MTB catalogs from the RetroBIKE archives. :mrgreen:

I like that.

I've got the fork from one of these for an old Marin I'm building.

This should be built with M730. I had a 1987, and the spec is exactly the same.
Good luck finding the 'Bulge' bars!!
Really nice bikes these 8)
