Plan for this one is to turn it into a road-ish tourer or city bike type thing. Geared, rideable for long distances. Well, longish, I have a 30k loop around the city I'd like to do
The componentry seems to be saying mid to late-80's to me.

Long-ish distances on pavement or hardpan, put it on a major diet and make it 1X in the process. It'll lighten up nicely and be much more manageable. That paint is great and will restore easily.

I had a kickstand on my bmx bike cuz I was soooooo fast, that once I SMOKED everyone and got to the finish line I had to put the kickstand down, cuz all of the babes wanted an autograph and I didn't want to damage my 24k gold plated pedals by laying the bike down.

Just grabbed a pair of "new" 2010 Hardrocks, his and hers. It'll get us back on the trails. I forgot what suspension and gears feel like! First time with SRAM trigger shifters, man is that weird compared to Shimano. She's coming off gripe-shift, so it's even more dramatic for her.

She is in love with hers, mine will probably be resold or become a parts source for the RockRat when I find The One.
Friggin guy listed them as Rockhoppers, would have been a mega score if only it were true.

She yelled at me when I told her I was thinking about putting those shiny parts on an older, rustier Hardrock. "That's freaking crazy! Why the heck would you do something like that?"
So, maybe not a parts bike...
