1987 Mountain Goat Whiskeytown Racer

Nice WTR with an interesting "smoke" finish with color-matched stem and Silca pump.  This bike has a full Shimano Deore XT (M730) drivetrain except the rear hub and rear shifter were later changed to 7 speed XT stuff.  This was a fairly common "upgrade" back in the day.
