This almost the same model as my first "real" mountain bike. The nostalgia is well worth the 40$ I paid for it. I bought the original at Hawaiian Island Creations in Pearl Ridge mall. Perhaps 1990 or 1991?

Spent Sunday at "The Drake" a beautiful hotel in Chicago, to learn about beautiful bike components. Hours of bike dorkery.
