    Vintage Specialized model?

    Sup guys, I was hoping that you could help me out with something. When i was a kid i used to go mountain biking with my dad and his friend who had a Specialized bike that i loved. Now that i am older, i really want to buy this bike. The thing is i cant remember what it was or what year. Im almost sure it was a Rockhopper (could of been a Stumpjupemper too) with a black frame, the Specialized logos in yellow and i think light pink and teal were also on the frame. I tried to come up with something of a scheme to show you and i think it was something like this...




    Any help is appreciated

    Two weeks ago I was running in the trail and saw a kid riding a rock combo and I loved the colors it was white though with same colors. Have a look at the one I saw.

    yea ive seen that color scheme too, all those 80's retro colors look so sweet on bikes.

    There was a black stumpjumper that had a magenta logo with mint green drop shadow. 1990. Not sure if base model, comp or team. Probably base model because I think Comp and Team would have Tange Prestige seat tube decals. There were also black with yellow logos that year but I think those might have all been lugged carbon Epics.
    Any idea of the earliest/latest possible year you'd have gone on these rides?

    1980ish Free Spirit Sunbird fixed * 1996 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G * 1997 KHS Comp * 1990-ish Scapin * Olde Western Auto Cruiser.
