Look Ma, No Hands!
Here's my roommate on my Cruiser around Easter, 1983. I remember it saying "Deluxe Cruiser" on the chain guard, but then I remember a lot of things....:rolleyes: I bought it at the Outdoorsman in Durango in the spring of '82. Long before it became 'Mountain Bike Specialists' it was hook, bullet, and team sports up front; Schwinn party in the back! Blue with a chrome fork and tan saddle. $188. They also had one tricked out with anodized BMX parts for over 300 bucks. The cool kids were already riding Stumpjumpers but that stuff was too rich for my blood.

LOL, he didn't have a bike so we'd walk/push up Perins Peak together then turn around. One would start riding down, park the bike and start walking. The other would walk to the parked bike and then ride by, leapfrogging the other, then park after a while and start walking, and so on... Good times...:)

If it was a Deluxe Cruiser it would have a spring fork.
Yes, I realize that. Since klunkers were more than a beach cruiser style statement there, I suspect the shop swapped it out for the chrome tubular unit, knowing the springer would have been useless for off-road riding. Perhaps it sat a while, unsold, until they changed it. The tan saddle was also not as chunky as any others I've seen. ;)
