    Any ideas on dating this Norco?

    Found this at a thrift store for $10. Thought it might make a fun restoration project. Anyone have any idea on what year this bike is? Made in Taiwan, serial number is F7127402.

    I wouldn't date it, not my type.
    I'm sick of all the Irish stereotypes, as soon as I finish this beer I"m punching someone

    From the serial number:
    F = Fairly of Taiwan
    7 = year of manufacture, 12 = month of manufacture. 1987 December

    1988 Mountaineer model

    according to the norco.com timeline page, they started building mountain bikes in 1984; I have a Mountaineer with the upper-case "N" headbadge and five-colour rainbow stripe, which according to the timeline, was used before the style on your Mountaineer, which they identify with the 90's segment.
