    88 Mt Tam

    Picked this up from the original owner. Told me it had never seen dirt or rain. used on a trainer most of it's life. By the condition I don't doubt his story. He ordered it with canti's front an rear. Included the 88 fisher catalog and original sales receipt.

    Photos are from original ad

    Never seen dirt nor rain...sounds like a Klein. I'm not a big Fisher fan but that's awful nice.
    Looking for:
    • Bontrager Comp crown, 1" threaded
    • Syncros Revolution, drive side 172.5

    Sweet! I've always liked those. (It was the bike I lusted over, along with Ritcheys when I was riding my badass Takara Highlander in the 80's.)
    Don't call it a gooseneck.

    Looks to be in great condition!!!

    I've always liked the paint scheme on that bike. Kind of John Deere, but nice.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Very nice.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Always loved the Mt. Tam. My first MTB was a used 86 Montare (bought in 88) and the Mt Tam was my dream machine. Sooo clean. I want!

    That's a prime example of a high end, hand built production bike. Very nice. I'd quiver that proudly.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    So clean, it's begging to be ridden on descent trails.

    Theres a younger kid that rides one identical to that one, fillet brazed and its way way to big. Also its not as pristine as the one above. Its one of the biggest mountain bikes ive ever seen. Its so big he has the seat post all the way down as far as it will go just to ride it. I've tried to buy it but he won't budge. I'm shorter than he is so I couldn't ride it, but would be a good bike to have

    Nice! I'm a big fan of the Teesdale Mt. Tams. Nothing rides quite like them. I finally found the right size, but unfortunately it's not in nearly as good a shape as yours. The search continues...
