Here's a pic i recently dug up- early eighties, classic Marin county frame geometry, bullmoose handlebars, but a cheap cottered crank I think, maybe eighteen speeds? I didn't have enough $$$ for a Ross or a Ritchey, but I got this piece of shiz bike though, a real gaspiper, one of those 1982-84? maybe no name mountain bikes multiplying like rabbits in the bike world.

I used it for thousands of rides, replaced the wheels with some handbuilts on American classic stout hubs, many miles of backwoods touring and camping trips on it back then. I even broke that set of Bullmoose from metal fatigue, they pulled off the stem while I was riding it one day. It eventually died the cheap bike way, neglect.
