That looks like one fun and comfortable ride!!!

Nicely done!

These 950's are familiar to me.

I found two of them locally in the Dallas Ft Worth area a number of years back in the 22" size.

One , a 1989 and one a 1990 in this same bright blue color but the paint on both was very scratched up so I had both power coated, one gray and one silver.
They are both mentioned in this thread about mid thread or so.

My son has one that he occasionally rides and the frame of the other resides in my garage waiting to be rebuilt.

A friend took it for a while and recently traded it back less wheels and most of the parts.

I once did some looking online at these 950's and came across a fellow that had converted his for loaded up touring and rode it the perimeter of the United States.

These rigid fork vintage mtb's are tough and versatile bikes worthy of quite a few different applications.

Safe riding on yours eeuuugh

Honestly, I ride that old Woodlands more than about anything else these days.
