I've been looking for a classic MTB to pick up, and I've found one listed on CL. The owner claims it to be an 81/82 StumpJumper, however I'm having difficulty confirming the date based on the bike's components. I've attached the photos emailed to me by the seller.
I emailed him with an offer of $80 (He's not sure what's it's worth so he's accepting 'bids' which he won't share with me, however he says that others have bid 'much higher' than $80).
Something's up, because he's taken down the original post and re-posted it yesterday. Not sure if he's trying to bump his ad or what.
I'm using http://mombat.org/Specialized_Specs.htm to try and confirm which model year it is based on the components. The rear DR looks like it reads "XC SPORT", and the front DR is a Suntour AR. Based on the site that I mentioned, I can't find any model with those components.
Any idea how much this bike should be worth, or can anyone help me date it? I have additional pictures if needed.
