Very nice! The geometry seems quite similar to my Ibis SS, which is a great ride, with that sloping toptube.

Yet another catchup/recap of a build thanks to photo bucket.

I picked up this frame off a gentleman that didn’t really know what it was. I recognized some of the design features and stamping and guessed it was a goat. I was right.

With a bit of help of the late Jeff Archer we determined it was a 1985 Mountain Goat Trials. Pretty rare according to Jeff … he figures there were about 4 built. Two are at MOMBAT (’85 and ’86) and one is in a private collection (‘86). Jeff helped me out with an emblem and sold me another Lindsay built Road frame. Sad that he is not with us any more … such a nice guy and great resource.

Image

The Trials goat was a cross between a XC bike and a trials bike. 26” tires with a higher BB – billed as the bike to ride over anything. A free ride bike ... in 1985.

I started messing around with some setup ideas thinking I wouldn’t find a set of the bars.

Image

And I did!

Image

I found a super cool 1985 burgundy Selle Turbo saddle and decided to make that colour direction. The actual colour was “Harley Burgundy” if I recall correctly. It has a bit of metallic to it. Add a NOS Spesh headset and things were coming together.

I picked up a set of 1st Gen Bullseyes for a song … rough … so I restored them to like new.

Image
Suntour Bear Traps to Death Traps … if you have owned a pair you know why they are called this!
Image

The whole bike is a bit wild and eclectic so I just sort of ended up embracing it. I have had a tri-pulley XC Suntour group for a while and decided this was the perfect place for it to go. Really smooth system.

Image

Emblem in place and NOS Deerhead Cantilevers :)

Wow, that is something else. The bash guard is interesting, if not different.

Beautiful bike! Just wondering if that bashgurad is going to damage the paint if you ever hit something with it?
