just a little help, please.
General was a brand of entry level ATBs and hybrids manufactured in Bethelem PA. I've seen info pointing to the parent company as being both General and the Bicycle Corporation of America (BCA). Bicycles were offered under the BCA, Forest Ranger and General brands. They also contract manufactured other brands such as Maxxam. Timeframes for the ones I've seen were early 1990's.
