1984 Bianchi Grizzly Mountain Bike Red

This is a really cool example of an early mountain bike.  I believe these were the first mountain bikes that Bianchi ever made and one of the first mountain bikes made by a major bicycle brand.  Nice, lugged manganese steel tube frame in a red color.  The one-piece bullmoose handlebars are quite different than what we are used to seeing.  12 speed drive train with Shimano components and thumb shifters.  Wheels are 26” with Araya rims and cantilever brakes.  Chrome steel fork and fluted seatpost.  Take a look at one of the first mountain bikes, still fun to ride no doubt:
