Wondering if Bianchi made the grizzly MTB in 1984. From the Shimano derailleurs I am getting an 84 manufacture year. Pulled information about parts and there date stamps from the vintage trek web site. My bike is a Grey Brown? (depends on the light) in color with Red decals and a Yellow grizzly sticker. It has a made in Japan sticker.

Thanks for the help.

Tough question. Not many companies made mountain bikes in 1984. I Think the Grizzly appeared in the 90s, but I have no references to back that up.

I believe the first Grizzlys were from '84 - '85ish.

Put up some pictures if you get a chance. There is not a lot of information out there on the early Grizzlys.
