The 1982 Mountain Goat
This bike is from the 2nd year of Jeff Lindsays MTB production. He made some great road bikes in the 70s and so early as 1981 he made the transition to the MTBs. The Mountain Goat was a bit different than the Ritcheys and the Breezers. One piece handlebars, drum brakes and .035 Phil Wood oval chrome moly main tubing. And rad paint jobs.
This particular Goat was made in 82 but built in 83. Serial #2582 makes this the 25th bike in the 2nd production year. The bike was built with Shimano Deer Head components, Araya rims and Cook Bros Racing hubs. The Brooks seat and Biplane fork still tells that this is an older bike.
In 1982 there was one model – the Mountain Goat. It came in two different equipment levels – the «Deluxe» package or the «Inflation Fighter». This has the Deluxe package.
