Yes, I owned one briefly. Its an early, Schwinn, mountain bike, probably from the mid 80s. It had center pull, not cantilever, brakes. It had friction shifters and was maroon. If the paint is faded, it would appear to be primer in color, but it's not. I bought it for parts, but after cleaning it up and fixing the broken derailer, it was an amazingly good, solid bike. The shifters are friction, not index.
If it's cheap and all there, buy it if you need a good beater or, IMHO, the best beach cruiser ever made.
EDIT: I purchased mine used at a Garage Sale. If anyone owned a new Mesa Runner from the early or mid 80's, their info will be more accurate than mine.
