    awesome pic I hope to check out the new hall of fame when it opens up.

    I posted a previous image of this bike as it was when I bought it. Pretty rough looking. Now it's shaping up to it's final, riding form and looking much better.

    1980's Takara Highlander mostly likely built by Kuwuhara in Japan. The style is that of an 82-84 Stumpjumper but if the serial number contains the year of manufacture, it could be a 1987 model. I would love to find out but information on Takara bikes is scarce.

    I'm not a collector and I bought this to ride so it's been updated with the wheels, brakes and derailleurs (not installed in this photo) from 1990's Treks, a new seatpost, new BMX pedals and 55mm Schwalbe Big Apples.

    Nice looking Takara. Pretty sure it pre-dates 1987. I'm not sure if I got my Takara MTB in 87 or 88 but it had this type of decal design:

    It's a greasy finger, manual front shifter setup.

    I added the saddle, below was how she looked when purchased.



    Swapped saddle & grips...may go with drops or moustache bar.

    I don't know if I'd swap anything. There's a certain charm about it as is. I'll bet it still rides great even all beat up.

    I scoured ebay for one of those eazy e stickers - not one to be found.

    Picked this up yesterday (had to drive 2 hours to another area's CL to get it,hahaha,but worth the drive ). Anyone know what year it is? I'm thinking '95 from a quicky google search for pics of various years. I haven't even cleaned it up yet,but it rides nicely around the 'hood Specialized Hard Rock...
