Circa 1984 vintage mountain bike manufactured by Ross Corp. in Allentown, PA in excellent condition. Ross built a run of high-end early mountain bikes for about two years under various model names such as The Mt. Hood. This is a big frame with a stand-over height of 34 3/4 inches so would be suitable for someone 6 feet or taller. Frame is in great condition with just a few scratches and paint chips. I swapped out a bunch of critical parts to return the bike to a factory-new ride. The bike was always garage kept by a family member and never exposed to the outdoors when not being ridden. Drive train is 3 x 5 (triple chain rings, 5 sprockets) for 15 speeds. Check out the work performed below and please contact me with any questions.
Thanks for looking, Art.
