>> “Mangaloy 2001” is Tange’s manganese steel alloy (similar to Reynolds 531) from the 80s

Thanks. Didn't realize it could be that old.
But of course, in the 80s, "2001" was cool... before everyone panicked about the Y2k bug

So much learning going on on this thread!
cheers -mathias

EDIT: It's a 1983 per vintagetrek.com.
Tange Mangalloy + panels nails it down.
Nothing special but I bet it rides nice.

BEAUTIFUL!! If that was a bit bigger I’d be looking for a facilitator. That’s probably the nicest looking 700c Mountain bike you’re likely to see. Yes these Projects are real deal mountain bikes not fancy pants hybrids
