There's a German website which has a lot of catalogs scanned, but I don't remember the URL. I bet if you do a search here you'll find it. There may be a 1990 Fisher catalog there.

I had one a while back and it was cool. Didn't Fisher and Cunningham collaborate on that one? Seems like I heard that when I had mine.

Just added this to the pile. Came with cbr rsr cranks and bullseye hubs and ringle ti purple quick releases too. G-D those qr-s suck ass. Why would you have bullseyes and put qr-s on them? Those bolt on ore sweet. I use to sell fishers and alway liked the metallic grey non evolution version. Got this one a few weeks back for a song. Came with most of the original kit minus the obvious. Figure I will hit the trails with it a few times just to be able to judge it for what it is then either give it my once over or pass it on its way.

So I have a question. When the names first started to show the name Gary in the logo. Is that when Gary first sold the name out and production moved from Japan to Taiwan? I know that he sold out once before the trek deal but never knew how to tell the difference.

IIRC there was something to do with the company Fischer(?) that makes skis that also led to Gary being put on there.

My 88 HKEK wasn't a Gary. Taiwan built. I also think it had to do with the ski company.....

GF was over to visit the other day, and I asked him what his favorite Fisher bike was, and he said it was the CR-7. The reason Fisher Bikes became Gary Fisher Bikes was because of the ski company.

my cr-7 is made in taiwain, it's 1992 the last series of cr-7.

Fisher did not sell before trek, but has moved production and looking for partners to avoid bankruptcy.

ciao

Quote from Fisher:
"Fisher sold his company in 1991 to Taiwan's Anlen, where it tumbled head-over-handlebars for the next two years. "I was basically a puppet president," Fisher says of his time with Anlen. Out of the decision-making loop, Fisher felt at odds with the management. "It was nuts. A lot of stuff went on unbeknownst to me." Fisher does not hide his disappointment with the events at Anlen, "It was totally frustrating watching something we built for all those years just get crushed in a lot of ways."

After two excruciating years with Anlen, Trek, the well-established American bicycle manufacturer located in Waterloo, Wisconsin, came to the rescue and bought the struggling company. "
