I know vintage mountain bikes don't have a big following, but this one is kind of nice with the bull-moose bars, etc. Do you all think $100 is a fair price?

If it fits it is a great deal. I don't know why the seller is providing a link to the '93 model, as this bike is clearly a mid '80s bike but a real nice one.

It looks like it has Suntour friction shifters. That fork crown is pretty cool.

If it was the 1993 model, it would be an OK deal.

As an early/mid 1980s model, I would be in the car right now.

Grab now, study later.

Older than my '86 for sure. Some parts are similar. Fork crown is earlier style, before '86 at least. Yes I'd take it for $100.

Did you get it? I'd pay $100. Parts look 84/85 to me.

Bottom line is that it was a really good bike to start with and looks to be in good or better condition. $100 looks like a really lucky price.
