Just found out

that my 1992 Norco Rampage Team Issue MTB is a classic old school MTB. That just doubled its value in my eyes. Specially since it looks like new. These are few and far between from what I've heard. But truth be told I'm thinking I would like to find a 1993 titanium version of the Team Issue frame. Fat chance I think.

UH what? MTBs IIRC were invented in the very late '70 early '80s so while some here would hardly call any MTB vintage how can a '92 MTB be "old School"?

my '87 Grizzly with the long wheelbase lugged frame, U brake and thumb shifters must be the equivelant of a Clubman than right?

Umm, I would say that 1992 is still in the realm of old-school, the end maybe. Most MTBs were still rigid, rapid-fire shifting wasn't ubiquitous, steel was still widely available. Heck, the top frames from Trek and Specialized were steel. The Trek 990 was lugged True Temper, and the Stumpjumper was I think Tange Prestige.
