1992 Rocky Mountain Hammer ?$$?

Someone has offered me their1992 Rocky Mountain Hammer MTB. It has never been used and looks fine. The frame is made out of Reynolds 725 and from what I read on the MTB Review website it sounds like the frame is indestructible, but there were some problems with the sun tour components. I am thinking of putting road tires on it and racks and using it as a city bike and for touring gravel roads.

Has anyone any experience with this bike or have any idea what I should offer?

Much Thanks.
Gordon P.

In all honesty at the age I wouldn't give more than 100$ and thats pushing it. Suntour parts are not only old but well old...That would make a great ss or tour bike but isn't super tough compared to todays bikes.

Lowball him to start and get an idea of what he is looking for

Is it really "BRAND NEW" or "Like" brand new? Some retro guys would be drooling over that bike. How much is he asking for it?

If it's in good shape, it'll be a great commuter!

Thanks guys, yeah it's new condition as the person who owns it was unable to use it due to a physical ailment and it has sat in his barn since he bought it. Not sure if he would take $100 CDN for it. I figure that it has a few years of ridding left in it and I could try and replace parts as they wear out or as I up-grade my good MTB.
Thanks

I'd say go for it. What that in USD? About $60.00 USD? Heck, if it's in the condition you claim, it'd be worth it!
