    89 WTR, 90 Deluxe

    Hi all, I just joined...
    I'll get better pics of the Deluxe soon-it's in yet another transformation stage. Blue Sparkle w/ Hot Rod Flames. WTR in a solid Neon Yellow color, what was I thinking with such a basic paint job when they had all those beautiful outlandish ones to pick from?!

    MTB Purists Beware!! 90 Deluxe now fixie!!

    Hi again all,

    Well it's finally ridable, although not on dirt. Semi slick tires and fixed gear. Man, I'm a bad photog, so this is all I can do 'til I get it outside this weekend maybe. Sorry. Ordered new from Palo Alto Bicycles in 1990. I ordered Black Sparkle w/ Hot Rod Flames (two separate paint jobs actually) and it came outta the box in Blue Sparkle! I wasn't so sure at first but in a day or two I liked it better in blue and now am happy this "mistake" was made. Cooks Cranks, McMahon Ti BB, White Ind Eno hubs, C King HS, Brooks Ti saddle, Richey post, Nitto Moustache bars, BF Goodrich Tires, Brooks Grips, Paul quick releases and WTB Rollercam/Paul Levers in garage. If anyone wants better pics, lemme know and I'll try, but no guarantees. Yellow WTR is in Oregon and i can't get to it.

    That blue sparkle with hot rod flames is awesome...my favorite, along with the prehistoric one, of the thread. They painted the best flames anywhere

    My 21 incher has a round downtube. I was given the option when I ordered it to have 2 oval tubes, or one. Since I was going to do a lot of loaded touring on it I went with the stronger option.

    Deluxe CA Yuppie

    I purchased the Mountain Goat Frame that was on Craigslist over the past few months. While poorer, I'm happy as a clam. Gotten to know the painter here in town a bit and can't wait to ride through Bidwell Park, soon. Thought I'd share some pictures:

    Thanks

    Thanks,

    It came with a soft ride stem. I emailed the fellow in England who had one listed, but it sold last month! So I picked up a period Ritchey stem to start and have a set of Ritchey bars lined up. At Rumphy's suggestion I've picked up a set of XTR M900 shifters/derailleurís and brake levers. Still looking for a few items.

    The owner was visiting someone in LA and that's how it ended up listed there, but he actually lived in the east bay area. The condition is great with the only a couple chips on the top tube and a few patches along the chain stays. The seller was the original owner and kept the holes plugged so it does not appear to have any rust issues(except a at a chip point or two). Russ was pretty impressed with the condition.

    The seller said he had a cafe and kept it and another bike or two on the walls as displays. By word of mount people would come by to see "the bike".

    Difficult to spend so much for a frame, but the quality and condition of the bike, as well as the seller made it a pretty easy decision.

    Longer than a few years. You brought it to the first Sea Otter vintage ride in 2005. (you didn't ride, but a few of us did)

    Hi everyone. I just registered here. I saw this thread and I had to.

    I had a Deluxe that was stolen way back in 1990-1991 near SDSU in San Deigo. It was dark blue/candy and I think it was a 20 or 21 incher. If I remember correctly it was all Shimano Deore XT.

    I have the papers around here somewhere with the serial number. I realize I may be showing my hand here, but has anyone ever seen such a bike?

    1995 Whiskey Town Racer 12 inch frame

    My 9yr old son's WTR as found from a flea market this past summer. Brakes should be canti's but he does not care. It fits him perfect and he loves to ride it. I was not too familiar with the Mountain Goat brand, but figured the King headset alone was worth the $60 she was asking for the bike.

    Jeff Lindsay with his first Mountain Goat, and Joe, the original owner since 1980. Photo is from the Old Goat Ride, May 10 2015, sponsored by Pullins Cyclery in Chico, featuring myself and mountain bike legend Jeff Lindsay.

    Pullins Cyclery has operated at the same address since 1918. Steve O'Bryan is only the second owner.

    Just put this up in the WIW thread, but it's sadly not mine, (I've been asked to sell it by a customer) figure putting a couple of pix here will help preserve my memory of it.

    Unknown year, but parts put it around 1993 I would guess.





    More pictures over in WIW.

    Does the "new mountain goat" company offer ovalized tubing? That was a defining feature of the REAL mountain goats that were made in Chico, CA. by the real mtn goat company which is no longer in business.

    Does the "new mountain goat" company offer ovalized tubing? That was a defining feature of the REAL mountain goats that were made in Chico, CA. by the real mtn goat company which is no longer in business.
    I'm not sure if they did or not, or if any more frames will be made since Jeff Archer passed away. Most of the new frames were built by Sycip, and I'm not sure if they used ovalized (at the BB) tubing. They definitely did not offer the full frame being ovalized like a "Deluxe." I don't think that tubing exists any more
