1988 Mountain Goat Trench Goat

The Trench Goat was Mountain Goats attempt at capturing the ride of the other Goat bikes but at a more affordable price.  The combination of Japanese construction and Shimano Deore components cut hundreds of dollars from the price and offered a whole new group of consumers the Mountain Goat experience.  The salmon colored base paint has an orange splatter on the right side and white splatter on the left which was a nice detail on a "production" bike.
