This model shows up in the 88 catalog but I have found pics of earlier ones (84-86) that fit this color scheme so maybe this explains the upgraded frame construction.
Do all of those model years show a chainstay u-brake? That helps to narrow down the date range for a lot of vintage mountain bikes. They seemed to only exist around the 87 model year for mainstream manufacturers, but not sure on smaller production brands like this.
