You could be the proud owner of this vintage gloss black Ross Mt. Hood mountain bicycle. Made in Allentown PA in June of 1983. This was the first mountain bike model offered by Ross. Originally named the Force 1, later in the year changed to Mt. Hood due to trademark issues with Force 1. This bicycle features nice lugged construction from Ross Amlite tube sets, and gold anodized Ukai rims. This classic mountain bike is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


This bicycle has a few scratches in the paint here and there, and the padding in the saddle is coming apart too. Otherwise it is in good overall condition and free of major damage including bends and cracks.

This bike has been fully tuned by a shop mechanic with many years of experience. Then the bike was given a thorough eighty three point inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rides the bicycle checking steering, braking, and shifting. After you receive this bicycle minimal adjustments and assembly will be needed to be ready to ride.

This bike is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
