High Sierra numbers

High Sierras from that era were quite nice, but have very limited value. Can make a nice ride, or a great source of parts. Its one of the models I keep an eye out for as they are relatively plentiful.
Thanks Bill. I remember now the rear derail leur breaking, and the one I have now is a replacement! But the roller cams came with the bike and I still have the receipt dated 3/15/1984, so it cannot be a 1986 or later model! It has no numbers on the head badge, but the bottom bracket is stamped with the s/n and under that G 1 0 8 5, so maybe it was made in Jan 1985? I dunno. I have no interest in selling it, just still riding it for old time's sake.
