Long typical story short...I grew up in the mid-80 and spent most of those days kicking it in the sun and racing bmx on all chrome diamondback 20". That one got stolen from me in my teen years. Time goes by and a 6'1" guy can no longer mix it up off-road on a 20", so eventually got into MTB. 1989 got me a Specialized Stumpjumper that stayed with me into my college years ~1996 before it got picked off. Needless to say I am a tad bit mentally scarred by both these accounts. Anyway I have one 1997 Haro MTB that's made it 16 years and know I have set off on a project to fix and relive some of my past. So my journey has lead me to this 1984 Ross Mt.Hood. First off 1984 was a good year for me, it's a MTB so it will fit, and its all chrome. Other cool factors are its the closest American made bike I may ever own. Something designed and assembled in America sounds like it may be part of history one day...if not already. I know there are a few of these that will show up on ebay in perfect condition, but I like to adopt old dogs, so you can understand where this is going. I have since revamped my 80's playlists and cleared out some room in the garage to hold cold beer and of coarse a place to work on the bike. I have since taken almost everything down and either hand washed, degreased, polished, painted, and tried to patch some chrome spots. I am not trying to stay 100% all original but I am trying to stay "time period correct" if possible. The seat\tires might be the only items not time period correct. Here are a few shots of what I am working with. I will update in a few weeks.
