    Judging by that under-the-stay U brake, and that lovely color scheme, I would estimate its vintage at 1985 or 1986.

    All I know, is I want to "fix" it.
    Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

    Mid-late '80s GT. Pretty much their first and only mtb at the time. Looks like most of the parts are original.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    They all are....except for the BMX brake I had installed in place of the one that fell apart out back.

    Stupid me...a few years ago when I was given this...I singlespeeded it without thinking about its roll in history..

    still pretty cool....

    I doubt if you hurt the value much, if any. Still worth about what you paid for it.
