This was my pride and joy back in the 80’s 83 high Sierra powder coated, raced from 85 to 87 on it. I finally broke the frame and got a nice new yellow frame couldn’t put my old parts on that so I’ve been seeing this xt stuff and had to have it. So I had a nice xt high Sierra, took that to Moab Utah in October of 1990 and won a Merlin Fran in a poker run on the slick rock. Sold the Merlin for less than I should. Dam ramble on, long story short, keep riding the pic on the ski lift is from the snow leopard classic probably the first race in the snow. My x would come to the races and take pics the mud pic is from a race at montera just south of Pacifica. who remembers the coast range riders dirty thirty ? That’s me in the wool jersey right before the dirty thirty lol
