ParkPre Hammer. Park Precision was the full name, I guess. Just starting to do some research on the
company etc. http://www.parkpre.com/

Pics are as found, and included a rear rack, and a bag of all the parts to bring it back to stock. PO made it the SS for commuting. Had a hard time trying to get a clear shot of the ParkPre name. Kind of funny, the 'PP' after the 'Hammer', actually looks like "??" (two question marks). Gotta love the splatter paint scheme too!

Nice riding bike. Not sure what I'll with it for the long term. Anyways.. thought I'd throw a few pics up and contribute to the greatest thread ever!!!!!!!

I'm glad I can finally post in this thread. I just finished my dad's gift bike. Last year, he made a comment about how his commuter/fun bike Scott was a little big for him so I kept my eyes peeled for a nice replacement. The guy I bought this from runs a program for disabled folks and also flips bikes for extra funding. I picked it up in the dead of winter so I got a great deal!

'93 Bridgestone MB-3


My Dads gonna be here in a couple weeks and he has a pair of worn out lock-on grips that I'll be recovering in the same leather! I know he's gonna like it.

My 1987 Kuwahara Shasta / U.A.V. v 2.0... running as a 3 speed and is my primary winter / rain bike and just added the chain guard yesterday to really fred up the bike.



We have two seasons here... winter and road repair season and the 2.1 Panaracers blow through everything and I even found some snow on my route today when I decided to take a shortcut.

My latest score. $8.12 for this sweet 1991 GT Outpost. I was just gonna flip it but I dunno if I can anymore. Think I'll get a longer, flatter stem on there and keep her. Gonna be a shame to roll without the fancy painted stem, but...

Here is a 1994 Iron Horse AT100 I got for free from my brothers' neighbor. He was the original owner and kept it in the garage. He barely rode it. It still had the protective film on the head badge.

Now, I've flipped bikes before. It had been a while since I had done one. I put a total of $170 into it. All the bearing were still good. I did a complete (and I mean complete) cleaning and polishing job on everything.

I planned on putting it on craigslist, but my friends' brother-in-law bought before I can put it up. He saw it when it was missing the chain, cables/housing and cassette.

I ended up breaking my elbow in a mtb crash. It was my very 1st break ever and surgery. I now have a titanium plate w/ 8 screws. I finished the bike 4 days after my surgery. It was pretty interesting installing the cables/housing, shifters and tuning everything up with one hand.

I sold it for $250. Seeing that I sold some stock parts, I profited $100.

1985 Panasonic Pro-ATB w/Deore XT deer head derailleurs.



I need to adjust the rack and replace the bar grips, but it's a smooth ride.

My best guess is 1998 based on this: http://www.bikesdetails.info/Raleigh_M-20_1998.html

Rock on.

I wanted a light fork and thought I would give one of these a try, subtle they are not. I am pondering the use of black fingernail polish or Testors paint at some. My seatpost hasn't arrived, but I had to give it a spin so that is a temp (and hastily installed). I will have to get better pictures of this in the wild but for now I am happy I got it assembled and it basically works. Just need to fine tune the derailleurs and the brakes. BB7's give me fits. The V-brake in back works great, but do V-Brakes have lots of slack? I don't see how I could get it tighter.
Yum, I love Mikkelsens. How's it treating you?

How are these old mountain bikes off road? It seems like quill stems + hard impacts could be a complete disaster!

They all look good though. My dad has an old Nishiki in our garage.

I guess 1980s is vintage for MTBs.They were ten speeds first ? for eg a scwhinn 1983. I have Morrison Sidewinder in NZ about 1983. I have a brace of Diamondback Sorrentos plus another Jason Pollock inspired black / white spindrifted paint Diamondback with Shimano 106 style chainwheel. Not sure of their age but one Sorrento looks about 92-94 in satin blue met steel frame 21 spd with nice italised black graphics, cantilever brakes. The other is later; Frnt S [omni I think] and all alloy frame with black/blue graphics and a dam RDR hanger that broke, V brakes. It was going to be about $50 to get a new one and its a tiny bit of alloy, so I got it argoned arce back together and fettled for $25.00. All are very nice tothe eye and the paint and general design is appealing. Ride nicely too ( :

Also have some old NZ marketed but Asian built 'Raleighs' 'Trailblazer' sort of named things.
I think they are about 15 speed in black /purple with 26" steel chromed wheels.
The other is met blue with purple graphics.1 piece cranks... sort of thing.

I think mounting them on the lower top tube would be neat too.

Nice Trek Capecodder, I love the paint! The STX group is nice also, the smoked chrome finish is very pretty.
