1989 Mountain Goat Escape Goat

This looks to be a pretty early 1989 which still used the 6 speed Deore XT components (1989 saw the introduction of the 7 speed stuff).   The paint really makes this bike.  Aside from the bright multi color base paint, there is a selection of sharks, flamingos, dolphins, palm trees and even a beach chair and umbrella.  The paint originally added $300 to the base price of the bike.
