1988 American Montaneus

American Bicycle Montaneus with the non-adjustable head tube angle.  ABM was known for their show or beauty welds that were left unfinished.  Sometimes referred to as toothpaste welds or roll of coin welds.  This one is in nice condition with a pretty full set of Deore parts with XT hubs.
