    Yes they had a full line of bicycles for a few years in the mid 80s. The Team Europe II came with full Campagnolo kit.

    That's funny the logo is almost identical to the Catamounts of the mid nineties. My brother and sister both still have one. They both had them custom built around 96'.

    Hers has been many years retired and hanging in the rafters of the garage. His is still used to this day periodically. Here's a couple photos of my brothers [red bike] and a gray head badge of one I borrowed off the net. Just to give you an idea of the logo they used.

    Catamount = Mountain Lion

    Damn. I wish I had a picture of my brother's old Mongoose Rockadile. It was teal with every purple anodized part that Kooka, Sunringle and Raceface made.
    Then, he had an Answer Manitou fully that was covered with blue ano parts.

    My black Cannondale was mostly black with a few red ano bits.
    I like turtles

    That reminds me of my buddies old rockadile sx, it was also teal and decked out with purple ringle. I seriously miss those days...it was the last of a great era

    FWIW I'm still mainly riding retro but as I get older and the neck and back have gotten worse I'm going to have to switch back to something with a bit more suspension and less aggressive stances. It's still hard to beat the fun you can have on an old steel hardtail with little to no suspension up front though

    This is a 1991 Eldridge Grade that I finished last september... The camera does not register the true neon brightness, but it is veeeery neon.

    Marins were crazy with the neon. This Pine Mountain was a great M732 parts bike that I turned over as a townie bike for an older friend. Talk about visibility in traffic!

    Does this count? 1992 Scott Sawtooth. I picked up for $60 on the local classifieds. I put some new WTBs on it and have wider riser handlebars on order. Originally the plan was to build it to a single-speed cruiser or a drop-bar MTB, but after seeing how good of condition the components are in and how well it functions and fits me as is, I'm going to ride it as a rigid MTB for a while!

    Not a dropper, but an old USE post with a shim. Yup, it's a brazed quill stem (as is the frame), but with a 1-inch headtube, the fork got replaced with a almost period correct (1989) straight blade fork Paul happened to have laying around, it now rides as it should and ride well it does. I've toyed with making it a dirt drop, but it'd be a shame to not keep that stem. dig it

    Didn't know a conversion headset was available, what kind of cups make this possible for 1" headtubes? Have a Judy and quill setup perfect for this
