Wow. I was learning to walk in 1982. Had never seen one of those. Thanks for sharing.

I think I'll hold out for that Dynaco Stereo 400 amp and the vintage AR speakers instead.

Watch out for foam rot on vintage loudspeakers.

WOW!! You really don't see many MTN bikes from that era. That is really cool, but damn it makes me feel my age. I was 12 in 1982.

The earliest mountain bikes really had touring geometry except were built to accommodate 26 inch tyres... this allowed manufacturers to use their existing lug stocks except with thicker walled tubes.

I picked this Kuwahara up last week... it is a 1985 Siera Grande that may have had 2000 miles on it.
