    Need opinions on early 1990's MT

    *This is a cross-post from the tandem forum that I'm bringing here for more brand specific knowledge.*

    I'm looking at an early 1990's MT to be used for road and path with my wife. The only off-road it will see with us is through the grass and maybe off a curb now and then.

    My biggest question is, would this dent below the water bottle cage deter you? The owner claims the dent is in a "non-structural area."





    I am in communication with the owner to try and find out more about the bike. It appears that he's swapped out a majority of the components from original spec so I'm not totally sure what year it is. (93-94?) I've asked for the serial #.
    What I do know for sure is that the frame is black at the head tube and fades to green at the rear triangle and down the fork. The fork is a Pepperoni.

    Recalls, defects, shortcomings of a frame this age? Your thoughts, comments, concerns.......?

    It's a big ugly dent, but I'd ride the snot out of it anyway.

    Thanks.

    It sold before I could contact him back.

    With the size of those tubes I don't think you would need to have worried about that dent.

    Bummer on missing out on this one...

    The dent is large and unsightly BUT non-structural. I'm looking for one of these myself.

    Good luck next time!
