This of course is if they didnt jsut put the sticker on there.. They where pretty awsome bikes.
I had a mountain bike frame very similar to this that was bought as a frame. No manufacturer but it was probably made in the far east but mine had the same quality of weld- had the same rear dropouts and the finish is Nickel plating. Mine was made of "Fuji" steel and as a 17" frame without forks weighed in at 3.1 lbs. That is light or was when I bought it in 96. It rode like a dream and finally broke on the rear chainstays last year.
I only paid £200 for it but that was with a decent discount from my LBS.
Edit--- This frame is probably about the same age. The bottom bracket denotes older but if it was bought as a frame and forks- then an older bottom bracket may have been fitted.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
