It has an unusual seat tube lug, rear U brake, components were all Deore LX.

Any ideas? I can take more pics.


thanks!



The sloped top-tube, cool seat-tube cluster w/ hite-rite tab, and wish-bone stay suggests it's something pretty special. It's from the late 80s I would guess and would have been on the cutting edge of design and spec. For a couple years u-brakes were in fashion and even some high-class boutique builders used them.

check out this 1989 Mountain Goat. Wishbone. Sloping top tube. Hite rite. U-brake.

So what I'm saying is I'll take it off your hands because it's a fully rigid piece of junk.

Seriously though you have something special there. I would guess it's from a smaller boutique builder or possibly even a custom job.
