Nice find, a cool bike. Agree with what those before have said, a Montage from 1989/90.

Same colour as my 1989 Elix, and the graphics are very similar. I agree with the dates above as 89/90.

If it was earlier it would have a U-brake. And if was later it wouldn't be a Montage. :D

Cool, I just bought the same last week!
My frame isn't in such a good condition as yours, but it is still all original.
I've got a folder of this: http://is.pinkbike.com/photo/3517/pbpic3517308.jpg

Very nice. Reynolds 501 Magnum IIRC. Very good quality bikes.

this is a truly great bike, totally indestructible, whilst me and my best mate were swanning around on a rockhopper comp and a saracen tufftrax my other mate steadfastly stuck to his raleigh and kept up with us always. One bonfire night in a misspent youth we even put bangers(fireworks) down the seat-tube to much hystrionicsto try and blow it up la terrorist stylee and the bike still survived. My mate also took his montare all the way around wales cyle touring aged 15
