Searching for my old GF Supercaliber

Postby Storz » July 26th, 2017, 10:10 am

I know this is probably a LONG shot, but I am looking to see if I can find my old mountain bike.

The bike is a 1997 Gary Fisher Supercaliber that was originally the yellow to red fade...however it had been repainted by the factory in 98 and is a green to red fade with the updated 98 graphics.

When I sold it back in '98-99 it had an Amp Research fork on the front of it.

I lived in Brighton, MI (worked at the Bike Haus on Grand River) at the time and that's where it was sold. Going to dig around and see if I can find a picture to scan in.

I know its not much to go off of, but it would be really cool to have my old steed back to hang on the garage wall

I have just opened a bicycle repair shop in Pinckney called Bakyard Bikes LLC. I will keep a look out for it. Good luck on your hunt

To bad you do not have the first buyer's name and then you could work Facebook.
Back in the day I wanted an AMP bike really bad, but they went out of the bike business to soon. That Fork was cool.
You might start going to garage sales around Brighton come spring. Talk to people who are selling bikes. Sometimes garage
sale sellers are pickers and are reselling. If so, one of them might of seen your bike.
I say this because, when that fork stopped working, it would not get fixed, the bike would be tossed or put up up the garage or basement.
Maybe there is a picker (junk collector) in the Brighton area that might have a lede on your bike with a "strange fork".
Good luck,


Roy

I biked at Murry Lake a lot back then and never saw any bike with an AMP fork.
Maybe somebody in the Tree Farm night ride group would remember that bike. Track down the ride leaders of that time.

Have any pics of it?

I’d post on Facebook: An ISO post on Michigan Bicycle Classifieds. And a host of other pages. If you aren’t on FB send me some pics and I’ll post it for you.
