Hi, all! New here, so be kind as I'm not familiar with the forum. Trying to help my local co-op id what appears to be an early 80's mb. Oddities are frame pump braze ons and spoke holders. Has shimano deerhead fd and odd (to us) fork...http://www.flickr.com/photos/36411339@N04/

Thats a specialized stumpjumper from the early 80's. If you go to mombat.org they have some pics of the early ones. Yours looks like a 82 or 83. The shimano deer head stuff was the predecessor to the deore. Nice find!

I had a Schwinn Mirada that was very similar........similar fork and bars....frame material was 4130 as opposed to Tange though. Nice find!

Hey, Thanks! That's kinda what we suspected. But guess I'd never seen one quite this old. Needs lots of going over. This one will be up for restoration. Thanks again!
