Sweet mother of Jesus! I'd give 2g and my wife and my mate's TA for that!!! Check out the mountain bike hall of fame website; it's one of the very first mountain bikes first made in 1978!
Let me know if you Dad wants it to go to a new home!

Dude you weren't kidding at the dirt jumps about that bike. It looks like it has Ukai rims with strumey archer hubs that are drum brakes the inverted tuff or pro neck that thing is pretty sick as far as one of a kind mtb's let's go take that thing on a few shuttle run's down the fire road on peavine that would be fun.

I've got one. Complete and original. They made them for a few years. I paid $400 for mine complete about four years back. If you were to put it on Ebay it would probably get about $750. Although there hasn't been one for a while so it could go higher. I have a spare Lawwill stem that would be *****'n on there.

I don't know if you have a Shelby, but it does look to be pre-WWII. It looks like it's an early Klunker, or mountain bike, before the term was coined. Probably built up just before the Pro Cruiser was.

For more info, try this link:
