Restore and ride! No real point hanging it on the wall unless its broken. If you do decide to single it send the parts my way! Thanks.

Keep rockin' it as it is or restore to original spec.

I had the same year, next model down as my first real MTB too.

That was my first 'real' mountain bike. I loved that thing (other than the matte finish), it was built like a brick $hithouse.

And ride it like you stole it.

Hey, I did that exact same reflector tape thing on my 1st real mtb in the early 90's.

Those are great bikes....I'd say classic as far as off shore mass produced stuff. Mass Produced Classic . MPC... you heard it here first.

MPC...good potential thread name? I have lots that fall into this category - ride great but not collectible. This place needs more acronyms...

I know there are some here that put their nose up to anything that wasn't hand made in a one-man shop, but I think most would consider 80s to early 90s Stumpys as classics.

I'm biased but I reckon the Stumpy is a classic. Definitely had many years of great riding with it.

Bummer is after back surgery the riding position has proved to be way too stretched out for me. I ride a Mojo HD dually now, absolutely love it (do ride it like I stole it!).

Rather than hack up the Stumpy to turn it into an around town bike (sacrilege!) I reckon it might be better to hang it up on the wall as is and take it out once in a while. Might put the original forks and stem back on, that's probably about it.

Digitalhippie! Blog away. Nice 24" Kris. I went the cheapo route and modified a Torker to fit a 2.35 Mtn tire. Tube mod under the seat, I'm good with it. Brakes would be nice but I honestly go easy stuff only with one wheel. Plus clamp on canty's are way fugly. Want me to post a pik of the drive side so you can get a 1X visual of the stumpy? It really works well. Ride on.
