I tried a Touring 1, 2, Racing 3, and the B72. Went with the B-72. The bike actually came my way with a Flyer on it:

Great Looking Bike T. You really did a nice job with the parts selection and cleanup.

The only thing missing is the wooden blocks for the pedals so my feet would reach them, lol.

Right on Steve.
Early Mtn. bikes were tall, and I am 6'3". This is a 21" frame, I should probably be on a 23" by 1981 standards.
