Just bought myself something new. Couldn't resist myself when I saw it in my size. Now I finally have something from the eighties! Well, it first got to get overseas!

Here are some pics of the 1987 Gary Fisher Montare

And the link to mombat!

Frame and fork looks too good to have it resprayed. Not going to do a NOS-job like I am doing with my Mt Tam. Just going to build it like it was!

That's lovely! A real peace of mountainbike history, and in a great condition :)! I'm sure you will enjoy the build.

Looks great Bart - nice headset too - dura ace? I think you need a special tool for it - I've seen them on ebay.

It arrived a few days ago and I had some parts waiting for it. Still looking for some parts:

- Fisher Bulge bar
- Deore XT U-brake
- silver 26.8 mm seatpost
- front mech 28.6 FD-M730

An original Fisher stem is on the way, but for now I am using this white one. Looks OK IMHO.

Here are the pics:

Damn, that looks good.
I'd like a 80's Fisher some day.
