I’m not sure what got into me this year but I’ve been on the hunt for some vintage bikes. A few months back we looked at an Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra I built up with Dura-Ace 7400, an arguably pretty bike yet it’s nothing special per se. Now this project will be even cooler. It’s a 1984 Mountain Goat Whiskeytown racer I just picked up from Second Spin Cycles…
What makes it unique is it’s a fillet brazed frame with the unique Henry James and Mike Cherney cast fork crown. The bike has the original paint, plenty of beausage, and aside from needing to get it set up tubeless, is ready to roll!
We’ll be sharing some process images from this bike, as well as riding footage and a proper bike review in the coming weeks but for now I’d like to thank Martin from Second Spin Cycles for the killer deal on this unique ride and Mike Cherney for spreading the stoke!
Mike Cherney sent me this bolo tie he made from a Mountain Goat badge. How cool is that?
Update 11/27: I got the Ultradynamico Mars tires set up tubeless this weekend!
